Dbugging PHP and Eclipse

P: n/a
Hi all,

This is my first PHP development project. So far, I have around 15 classes
and 8 viewable pages. I've overcome a number of ideosynchrosies (such as no
whitespace after the heredoc end delimiter, jeez!). But, debugging has been
a tortuous problem for me.

I'm developing PHP 5.2.4 applications in an Eclipse 3.1/phpEclipse 1.1.8 IDE
on WIN 2K3 Server. I installed the free NuVision debugger php_dbg.dll-5.2.x.

I set up the debugging environment to look for the interpreter: c:\program
files\php\php.exe.

When I run in debug mode, I get the errors that caused a failure in the
Consode tab, example:
PHP Warning: current(): Passed variable is not an array or object in
C:\Web\Tbwe\Tbwe\test\session_mgr_test_harness.php on line 57

I set breakpoints which seem to be ingnored. The process doesn't stop at the
breakpoint ,and I get no other debugging information such as variable
values, etc. (probably because breakpoint isn't being honored I guess).

Am I missing configuration issues? Are my installed versions incompatible?

Without the additional debugging information, I will have to change back to
a Java or .NET stack, which I do not want to do for this project.

How do I get more robust debugging? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.
