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

1) org.jbpm.gd.jpdl.core_3.0.13.jar and org.jbpm.gd.jpdl.ui_3.0.13.jar -->plugin
2) org.jbpm.gd.jpdl.feature_3.0.13 (folder) -->feature

You also need to download jbpm from http://www.jboss.com/products/jbpm 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

Or you can use Eclipse Help -> Software Updates to install the plugin
