install custom JIRA plugin

I've created a JIRA plugin (actually a Gadget packaged as a plugin). After packaging the plugin, I have a .jar file. I now want to install this plugin into our local JIRA instance (v. 4.0.2), but can't seem to find the necessary instructions.

For 4.0, you should add it to (jira home)/plugins/installed-plugins

That assumes it's a version 2 plugin (there are two types of plugin - version 1's go in the application WEB-INF/lib, but Atlassian are moving away from them, as the v2's are more flexible and can be installed via the UI in later versions)

Thanks for the speedy response. Is there a more efficient way to test a plugin while it's still under development?
