Author(s):

The PHPEclipse plugin brings the PHP scripting language to the Eclipse development environment, and the Subclipse plugin integrates version control.

The free and popular Eclipse development environment gives programmers a feature-rich editor, version control manager, and debugger on a shared GUI. Eclipse was designed as a universal IDE that is easily extensible to accommodate a variety of programming languages. The PHPEclipse plugin converts Eclipse into a full-fledged IDE for PHP-based dynamic websites. Another plugin called Subclipse integrates version control with the Subversion version management system. In this article, we describe how to set up a PHP development environment with Subversion and Eclipse.
