For studying routing protocols, you can use virtual routers and LT interfaces to interconnect them. I have an SRX100 in packet-mode which I use to play with OSPF/BGP/.., works fine.
For MPLS, you can't use a single SRX100 as there are no logical systems on SRX. You can use multiple SRX and connect them together. The only drawback here is that the SRX100 only have FE interfaces so no jumbo frames. Your L2VPNs will end up with a smaller than usual MTU. Thats no problem for most lab setups though.
