To create a wordpress plugin, the file must be contained within a folder inside the zip. Come up with a unique folder name that nobody else will use. If the name is used by another plugin it will conflict and error out when adding to wordpress. So your tree should look like:

      my_unique_folder_name/arw_shortcode.jpg 
      my_unique_folder_name/arw_shortcode.php 
      my_unique_folder_name/arw_shortcode.js 
      my_unique_folder_name/arw_shortcode_table.php 
      my_unique_folder_name/uninstall.php
