Depends on what you need to debug. The usual way is to watch the logs
and the tracebacks, and whatever symptoms are occuring. Use your gut,
experience, the source, and the algorithm-prover in your head. If you
want to get a little deeper, you can use good old printlining, both in
the Zope core and in your own products. If it is a security problem or
an FTP problem, there are products to give you more information on
what's happening: search the lists, they come up often.
I'm not familiar with any IDEs or debugging tools -- not that there
aren't any: I just don't use 'em. If you really want to do so, I'm sure
you can setup up something like this with regular Python tools and use
breakpoints or stepthrough or whatnot.
