Markus Wolff's Blog:
Migrating to PDT
October 02, 2007 @ 09:32:00

Markus Wolff has been moving from his current editor (Zend Studio) over to a newly released (stable) version of an Eclipse-based IDE for PHP - Zend/Eclipse's PDT package. In his migration, he's found out a few things, good and bad, that he wanted to share.

It took a little while for me to get acquainted with the little oddities of the Eclipse platform. One can clearly see that it was originally tailored to fit Java development, and although PHP integration is now pretty good, things sometimes still feel a bit bloated and overly complicated. Having said that, I'm using PDT full-time for all my PHP development now and have kissed the old Zend Studio goodbye. Eclipse brings too many goodies to the table to ignore.

Among the "growing pains" he mentions are things like:

  • Piss-poor network performance
  • Frequent slowdowns and out of memory exceptions
  • If you can, use NFS instead of Samba
  • Adjust Java heap space
  • Turn off unneccessary validators

Check out his post for more details on each.
