Eclipse Upgrades PHP Development ToolsUsability enhancements include an indexing and caching engine based on the Eclipse Dynamic Language Toolkit to improve performance of PDT operations, a Mark Occurrences indicator to make it easier to see where an element is referenced, and a more sophisticated Code Assist feature for code completion based on PHP variable types.
Also highlighted is a project management tool to navigate project resources. PDT 2.0 offers better support for capabilities in PHP 5, Ganor said. PDT 2.0 will be downloadable at this Web page.
By providing an environment similar to Eclipse Java Development Tools, Java programmers can use PDT 2.0 to write PHP code in a familiar setting, Eclipse said.

"PDT is one of our most popular downloads at Eclipse," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation. "Since the initial release it has been downloaded over 1 million times. Clearly PDT adoption has been very successful in the Eclipse and PHP communities."

New features in PDT 2.0 to support the object-oriented capabilities of PHP include a Type Hierarchy view that navigates object-oriented PHP code faster and more easily; type and method navigation that allows for easy searching of PHP code based on type information; and override indicators that visually tag PHP methods that have been overridden.
