Tutorial for migrating Eclipse plugin to Intellij

Hi there, I have develop a plugin for eclipse and want to migrate it to intellij. Is there any doc or easy way to do this? I'm trying to avoid to maintain two UI's with two different technologies.
Any thoughts?

Eclipse and IntelliJ use completely different architecture, UI frameworks and pretty much everything else. The amount of code you'd be able to reuse and the best approach to migration really depends on what your plugin is trying to do.

Hi Dmitry, Thanks for you answer. My plugin is just a window that allows to debug the flow of mule esb. And I want to add it to the Intellij product since lots of mule developers use it. But the thing is that I don't have much time to implemented so I was wondering if some have some sort of convertion of JFace to Swing or something that can be run on intellij

In this case you may be able to reuse much of the existing logic. Use the ToolWindow API in IntelliJ IDEA as the starting point.

It doesn't look like there's a possibility to embed SWT UI components into IntelliJ IDEA's Swing UI.
