PHP Developing Tools 1.0 Released

Sep 20, 2007

The PHP development environment, PDT (PHP Developing Tools) integrates seamlessly with the Eclipse development environment.

PDT 1.0 (PHP Development Tools) was released by the PDT project and was previously known as PHP IDE. The release includes editors with syntax highlighting, automatic code completion and code folding. Software development with PDT is integrated with the Eclipse project model to allow code inspection in the file and project views and in a new PHP Explorer view.

Several variants of PDT are available from the Eclipse project download page or can be added to an existing Eclipse installation as a plugin. PDT is released under the Eclipse Public License v1.0 (EPL), a curtailed variant on GPL. Both PDT and the Eclipse framework are written in Java to make the IDE virtually platform-independent.

Eclipse is an Open Source development environment which is plugin extensible for any programming language. The project was launched in 2001 by IBM and supported by sales partners, many of whom are on the board of various corporations. Eclipse became a foundation in 2004.
