Perforce/PerforceDirect plugins question

What's the difference? We are evaluating Perforce and want to see how it
integrates with IDEA. Any comments on which plugin to use?

I prefer the perforcedirect plugin, it integrates directly with perforce.
All changes are immediately reflected in your changelist. The other one
integrates with the intellij vcs system, I found it confusing as you have
two different states (IntelliJs and Perforces) that didn't always match up.

Maybe I don't know enough about Perforce but how do you submit changes with
the PerforceDirect plugin?

You have to submit the changelist through the perforce client. I actually
prefer it that way, I like to verify the changelist in perforce and we
attach jobs to our changelists (our perforce is integrated with bugzilla).
