Development environment, logging, debugging and singlestepping
We are trying to set up a development environment on windows consisting of WampServer 2 and Eclipse 3.3 with the PDT-plugin and the Zend debug plugin. Is there anyone else with a similar setup that have found a way to debug and/or singlestep?
What environments are you guys working with? Is there any other environment setup that you can recommend?
Also, has anyone got the Mage::log() function to work properly?
I have been successful at creating a development environment on LAMP (shouldn’t really be any different than WAMP) that allows me to debug using the Zend Debugger module for apache and Zend Neon (Eclipse). I think your problem may in fact be that you are trying to run PDT and the Zend Debugger at the same time (on the server side), if I am understanding your setup correctly. I think they have a conflict that will cause issues if you have them both enabled at the same time. Try disabling one or the other and give it another shot.
