embedding jython in CPython...

I've read that it is possible to compile jython to native code using
GCJ. PyLucene uses this approach, they then use SWIG to create a Python
wrapper around the natively compiled (java) Lucene. Has this been done
before for with jython?

Another approach would be to use JPype to call the jython jar directly.

My goal is to be able to script Java code using Jython - but with the
twist of using Cpython as a glue layer. This would allow mixing of Java
and non-Java resources - but stil do it all in Python (Jython and Cpython).

I'd appreciate any pointers to this topic and pros/cons of the various
methods.

Well now that IS getting kinda complicated ...

AS far a natively compiling Jython scripts ... well, if you natively
compile them, it'll hard to "script" you java code afterward (I assume
by scripting you mean loading scripts at runtime that were not know at
compile time).

As for using JPype ... well it depends on what you want to script. if
you Java code is the main app, I'd eschew CPython completely and use
Jython to script. If you main app is in Python, and the Java code is
"simply" libraries you wish to use, then I'f go with CPython + Jpype. It
is very easy to manipulate Java objects that way, even to receive callbacks.

I guess it all comes down to what you mean by scripting, and exaclt what
the structure of your application (as far as what is java and non-java).
If you care to explain your situation a bit more, we'll be better able
to help you.

Thanks for the response. However, I continue to have problems. Allow me
to give some more detail.

For simplicity of testing, I hard coded the classpath and JVM path
(BTW getDefaultJVMPa th() returns None on my system)

import os, os.path
from jpype import *

startJVM("C:/jdk1.5.0/jre/bin/client/jvm.dll",
"-Djava.class.pat h=D:/Temp/classes")
....
shutdownJVM()
I have setup a classes folder in the script folder (D:/Temp) and have
placed test.class in it.
I run the script from the script folder (working directory is the same
as script's root path in this case)

Now how do I load the class test? I am afraid I cannot make that out
from the docs.

The simple test class is
public class test
{
public int i = 100;
}
What do I have to do before I can write
test().i
?

Thank you for your time.

About the getDefaultJVMPa th(), could you send me your system
information? On windows, JPype uses the contents of the registry to find
the JVM. Of course, the usefulness of this mechanism is limited byt he
sample of configurations i can test (I have only one machine). So any
info you can provide me on yours can only help.

About the classpath. JPype 0.4 currently cannot import classes that are
in the "default" package. The fix is easy, simply put your "test" class
in a package. For exmaple, if you put the class in the package "test",
the code to load it would be :

test = jpype.JPackage( "test").tes t

Hey good people, I've been doing a lot of simultaneous Jython and CPython programming lately, and just wanted to say, with no intended ill will toward any of the individuals who have been generous enough to make the two languages possible, that, well, they're kinda different.

Hi, I have read that this had been asked before but there's no satisfactory replies then. I have a module (pA) written in python, which originally is called by another python module (pB), and passes a python object (pO) to pB. Now I require pA to be called in a java class (jC) and pass pO into jC. As pA uses non-python modules, I am not able to use Jython on this.

Has anyone had any experience embedding a CPython engine in a .NET application? In the COM/ActiveX world, it was pretty easy to use Mark Hammond's win32 modules to create a script engine component that you could expose other COM objects to, but I was not sure how I would go about doing something similar in a .NET environment. For example, something like: .... .NET Application code ... 'Create Foo object. set Foo = New Foo("baz")...

Hello all I have a 'logger' module which is essentially just a facade over the 'logging' standard module. Can this be called from jython, and how is this acheived? This is a colleague's question but I have no knowledge of jython or java, and I can't install them at present in order to figure it out. It appears that the CPython logging builtin is not implemented in Jython, is this correct?

Hi There, I'm trying to run an App I wrote in Python 2.5.2 in Jython 2.2.1 and everything works fine except when I try to import the Standard CPython's cookielib.
