Is it possible to do it for eclipse plug-in-development projects also?

I think It would not be possible. The way jars are packged is something controlled by OSGi.

I suppose that link for EasyEclipse 1.3 isn’t valid.

It sounds like there is some mirro corruption. You cuold try try to use the version for 1.2.2. It may work for 1.3 and Eclipse 3.3. We will repost a new drop.
Thanks for catching that!
