Intellij Plugin Structure - External Files


I´m developing a plugin, that needs to communicate with external executable files (.exe & .jar) via Input-/Outputstream.

Is there a way, to bind these files into my plugin, without the user has to download the files separately and configure the path of these files in the plugin? So I can use relative paths?

Thanks and Greetings

Wouldn't it maybe make sense to have users download .exe (or JAR) depending on their OS instead of bundling it for all users? Path can be determined via com.intellij.openapi.application.PluginPathManager#getPluginHome
