We can use Axis for contract first web service too and Spring-WS for contract-last web service too.

Could can always manually (outside of Eclipse using a text editor) copy the contents of the .classpath from an old project to a new project and then in Eclipse do a refresh on the project to pick up the new entries.
If you are using Maven and m2eclipse, you can accomplish a similar thing by, within Eclipse, copying the dependencies form the pom.xml in the old project to the pom.xml in the new project and saving the pom.xml. Or you could create your own archetype that already contains the necessary dependencies and use that to create new projects.
