i'm currently setting up a development environment whose primary use is intended for testing and debugging a 'beta' of the live site that i run.
so far i have set up the following:
a virtual machine with
* LAMP-stack on an Ubuntu-OS
* XDebug-extension to Apache
* a Drupal installation that matches my live setup
Eclipse as IDE on my workstation with
* PDT (PHP Development Tools)
* RSE (Remote System Explorer)
Video tutorial about using Git GUI with Eclipse
Eclipse PDT 2.1 is based on Eclipse 3.5 (Galileo release). That release also includes Mylyn, a tool that helps you organize the to do list in conjunction with the bug reports in Trac and other bug tracking tools. I've never tried it before, but it sounds very interesting.
New all-in-one packages now include one for 64bit Linux and one for Mac OS X Cocoa.
With a new version comes also the question of upgrading. This post intends to share one potential way to do the upgrade.Read more

The Eclipse foundation is relaunching their Eclipse PlugIn Central (EPIC) plugin repository site in Drupal. Help them make it rock by analyzing their requirements document and giving them the best tips possible. A large number of Drupal developers use Eclipse as their IDE and we owe them a debt of gratitude. Help make EPIC rock!

I'm in the process of creating Eclipse module which will simplify drupal module creation.
For now it providing a wizard where you can choose module name, description and some hooks that needs to be implemented in this module.
I will provide it in a week or so.
If you're using eclipse for drupal development, fell free to post your wishes and feature requests.
P.S.: if such eclipse plugin already exists, let me know.
Here's a prebuilt virtualbox environment for development. Works on any platform. I think this is a great way to introduce people to developing Drupal with FOSS tools. if nothing else it provides a debugging environment plug-and-play.
What is it?
its a Virtualbox VDI image (which has a smaller footprint than VMware) using Ubuntu Hardy 8.04.
The the image of course (like VMware) works on any platform, Windows, Mac, *nix. I think anything with a JAVA JRE stack.
The setup includes:
- LAMP - using xampp - for a cleaner / easier interface for noobs, and includes phpmyadmin
