You need to extract the jpdl designer to the eclipse plugin directory and the feature to feature directory in eclipse homeand restart eclipse,

1) and -->plugin
2) (folder) -->feature

You also need to download jbpm from and extract it to a folder, and while creating a jbpm project, the plugin will ask for the jbpm installation, then poit it to the jbpm folder
