Jython as an alternative to Python

Jython as an alternative to Python

Tim Johnson

FYI: I've used python for years primarily on *nix platforms and
primarily for web programming. I'm considering studying a scripting
language that uses and accesses java. My first obvious choice would by
jython. The following questions could probably be answered by pointers
to previous discussions, docs or blogs.

1)What can jython *do* that cannot be done by python.

2)What is the current state of jython as a development community?
I.E. is it being upgraded, updated etc.

3)Is the jython community "bound to" the python community?
I.E. I don't think python is going to "go away", what happens if
jython development "stalls".

4)If someone in this community would consider a java scripting language
other than jython, what would it be? And why?

5)Are there issues installing and deploying jython on shared webservers?
I.E. Assuming that a dedicated server is one that I have full access to and
can install what I please, and a shared server would not afford me
such access; is there any trend for "server farms" to install jython?

Thanks

Import Java classes and instantiate them, calling their methods from Python.

It's currently just about at 2.6, and the developers are committed to a
port to 3.x (probably 3.2, I suspect) but haven't yet committed to a
timescale. Two of the main developers have just started work at Sauce
Labs, and this may affect their availability.

The PSF has already once provided a grant to keep Jython moving forward
when it looked like it might stall. I don't know whether this is
inevitable in the future, but *I* think Jython should be kept in the
mainstream.

Pass.

I don't know. A survey of Python-friendly hosting companies would be
useful. You could use

http://wiki.python.org/moin/Pyt...

as a starting point, and publish the data you discover.
