Deploy Eclipse Plugin with JWS

I have an eclipse plugin that I am trying to deploy online. I found some instructions online but they are not clear.

There are 3 jar files that correspond to 3 eclipse plugins (that correspond to a tool I developed) and a feature.xml.

How do I combine these together?
Do I need to make one common jar file of all the three jar files and then make a JNLP and deploy it?

Thanks for your help.

I was able to package and download the application successfully. But the eclipse plugin application is not launching. It says Starting application and nothing happens
Any ideas why this could be? Thansk for your help.

Take a look at the java console. You should be getting a stack trace in case of errors.
