How to use Eclipse Plugin in IntelliJ?

I have a plugin developed in eclipse. Now instead of creating an entire new plugin for intellij, i want to use the same eclipse plugin in intellij environment. i looked into a link "Eclipse RCP Development with IDEA - Java Newbie" and tried to migrate my eclipse rcp and plugin into intellij but it didn't work. So is there any way i can use my eclipse plugin in intellij environment? Any help would be nice. Thanks in advance

There is no such way. The API of Eclipse and IntelliJ plugins is entirely different.

To make the plugin in intellij I would like to know about the structure of IntelliJ IDE and which APIs to use. Eclipse provides prespectives and views interfaces to develop and design the plugin UI. Does Intellij use something similar? If yes, then what are the APIs? If no, then how to design something similar in intellij which has the same look and feel of Eclipse prespective and views? I am sorry to ask so many questions, but I am not able to find a proper way to start. The literature on this is very hard to find and i think i have covered the elementary links on how to make the plugin and UI quite thoroughly. So any help would be grateful. Thanks in advance

You can find plugin development documentation here: http://www.jetbrains.org/intellij/sdk/docs/index.html

Before starting to develop plugins for IntelliJ IDEA, please consider learning how to use the product. If you do so, you will notice that IntelliJ IDEA does not have a concept of perspectives, and instead relies on toolwindows to organize the user interface.
