What do you mean here? Do you mean that it need a different jars for
different architectures or that you need to create different jars for
different architectures?

As I did not fully understand the question, I can not really answer
but if it is not architecture independent (all) then it should not
be marked as such, which means that it should be marked as any, or
the specific architectures that it really support.
