What is PDT?

The PDT is working towards providing a fully functional PHP Integrated Development Environment framework for the Eclipse platform. This project will encompass all development components necessary to develop PHP-based Web Applications and will facilitate extensibility. It will leverage the existing Eclipse WTP Project in providing developers with PHP capabilities. The main components in this project are: Editor (syntax highlighting, code assist and code folding), Inspection (file / project outline and PHP explorer view) and Debug (PHP script and web page methods).

How is PDT licensed

PDT is licensed in accordance with the Eclipse Public License. Third party components built using PDT are made available under their own licenses

  1. Does PDT include a debugger? Where can i find one?

PDT doesn't come with any bundled debugger but you can download Zend Debugger from or XDebug from bugzilla.

How do I ask questions?

Questions about the use of PDT in user projects that are not addressed in this FAQ should be posted to the PDT newsgroup. Questions and comments regarding the implementation of PDT itself should be posted to the PDT mailing list.

How do I report a bug or request a feature?

PDT like all Eclipse projects, uses Bugzilla as its bug and feature tracking system. Entering a bug or a feature report is as simple as filling in a web form on the eclipse bugzilla page. The first time you enter a bug you will need to create a new bugzilla account for yourself by providing an email address and choosing a password. Before submitting a bug, please be sure to check the list of open PDT bugs and recentely closed PDT bugs.
