Set Up Eclipse PDT 2.0 On Eclipse 3.4 (Ganymede)


This is a howto about setting up a proffessional PHP IDE using Eclipse by hand. I’ll be using Eclipse PDT for PHP support. The PDT project provides a PHP Development Tools framework for the Eclipse platform. This project encompasses all development components necessary to develop PHP and facilitate extensibility. It leverages the existing Web Tools Project in providing developers with PHP capabilities. We will have in the end features like subversion support, edit remote files, database development, debugging and more.
