JSPWiki plugins are small pieces of code which allow more complicated  
rendering thatn basic wikimarkup.

The application which opens your attachment is decided by the  
browser, based on the file extension and the MIME type sent by the  
server.  Check out the $CATALINA_HOME/conf/web.xml to see the mime  
mappings used by the server.

Just linking to the attachment is quite enough.
