Go back to Intellij and export as Eclipse project. This will create the Eclipse specific .project and .classpath files.

If you no longer have access to Intellij, create a new Java project in Eclipse and add the require classpath entries via project properties build path. Then copy your code into that project.

thanks for reply . i have also done that, by adding all required libraries to project buildpath. even its still not compatible( i feel like i am missing one simple thing which can get it done). and i have been asked to modify build.xml files of my project to make it compatible with eclipse , can you give me any idea why and what all we need change in that build.xml

build.xml -being an Ant build file- has nothing to do with any IDE you happen to be using; either it works or it doesn't work with Ant. Whether this or that IDE can make sense of it really shouldn't matter. If you're bent on tying yourself to any particular IDE for your build process, and that IDE forces you to make changes to your Ant build, then you're making a serious mistake, IMO.

Unless you are using NetBeans. In which case the config is the build file and often has IDE specific build.xml. And I agree that is a mistake.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
