Xdebug does work together with the Zend Opcache, albeit with reducued or crippled functionality, as Opcache optimises out information that Xdebug could use.

Xdebug does not work together with other extensions that deal with PHP's internals (DBG, APD, ioncube etc). This is due to compatibility problems with those modules.
