You'll need to create a feature patch, and install your new plugin by
installing the patched feature.
Not sure which feature com.jcraft.jsch is shipiped in, but your patch
feature needs to refer to it, and to its exact version.
Eclipse Help covers patch features pretty well.

No ... you don't need to worry about signing (well, not to get it to
Jars are signed basically for one reason ... it is a good guarantee the
jar has not been tampered with by anyone, after being signed. So at
Eclipse, we sign jars in a controlled, secure way, so if a jar says it
was "signed by Eclipse" you can pretty much bet it really is the code
exactly as distributed by Eclipse. You could not, for example, go in and
change "by hand" the original com.jcraft.jsch bundle without Eclipse
(Java) complaining that its signature was invalid.
So, you customers might prefer a jar, signed by you, so they'd know
where it came from :) but if you don't, they'll just get a warning "you
are about to install unsigned jars, is that really want you want to do".
