Eclipse PDT 2.0 vs Zend Studio for Eclipse


Hello,

I have been writing PHP using Adobe Dreamweaver; I have been looking around for an application that focus more in PHP.I have found:

Zend Studio for Eclipse
http://www.zend.com/en/products/studio/

and:

Eclipse PDT Project:
http://www.eclipse.org/pdt/index.php

I know Zend stands behind PHP and that Eclipse is a popular open source IDE.

What is the difference tho?
Is the PDT Project only a functionality that could be added to Eclipse IDE?
Is Zend for Eclipse a stand alone IDE for PHP? if so, Why the Eclipse in the name?


I have downloaded Zend Studio for Eclipse, so far it seems very complete (no that have learned how to use all its features).

Any help is really apreciated.

Thank you

Angel

Zend is now a module for eclipse. They abandoned their own core ide with version 6.

The PDT is not bad depending on what your doing. If it is personal work or learning more php that you are trying to do go with it. But if it is professional work and you need a better debugger, internal php engine for running full projects without the need of a web server, and if you like pure intellisense while your coding go with Zend. I have been using it since version 3.11 and love it, but it also depends on my project. If it is small scale I use komodoEdit, editplus, or scite and just do the coding with out the glamor and debug on my computer and use a remote web server to debug.
