Beginner needs help with Eclipse plugins, RCP and OSGI

Hello,

I am new to eclipse RCP. I am trying to integrate eclipse gemini blueprint into an eclipse RCP application.

Basically I have go three jars:
-gemini-blueprint-core-1.0.0.RELEASE.jar
-gemini-blueprint-extender-1.0.0.RELEASE.jar
-gemini-blueprint-io-1.0.0.RELEASE.jar

How do I create plugins from those three jars? I have tried to create three plugins (create plugin from existing jar archive) from the three jars naming the three plugins as follows:
-gemini-blueprint-core
-gemini-blueprint-extender
-gemini-blueprint-io

But then I am having trouble starting (osgi meaning) the following plugin: org.eclipse.gemini.blueprint.extender as stated in the gemini blueprint documentation. It just does not appear in the plugins tab of the run configuration.

Can anyone please help?

Regards,

Julien.
