The new WID 6.1.2 hides plugin installation by default. I was looking for usual Eclipse menu Help->Software Updates->Find and Install to point to Site for installing the plugin, but it disappead. The trick was to switch from the default “Business Integration” perspective to “Resources” and then “Software Updates” are back and working.
Of course other ways of copying jars to features/plugins and links are still working, but the managed updates via Eclipse seems to be more elegant way. (http://www.venukb.com/2006/08/20/install-eclipse-plugins-the-easy-way/)
