Eclipse PHP debug

There are 2 plugins to do PHP development in Eclipse (obviously they are incompatible) they both should work with Eclipse 3.3 Europa.
They have almost the same features. PDT gets my preference.

There are 3 differents debug engines : DBG, xdebug and Zend_Debug (close source).

  • XDebug
    There are two different protocols to communicate with the debugger: the old GDB-like command protocol (GDB) which is implemented in Xdebug 1.3 and 2; and the DBGp protocol which is implemented in Xdebug 2.
  • DBG is a full-featured PHP Debugger and Profiler.

Profiling client KCachegrind can read XDebug Profiling files.
