Porting Tkinter application to JYthon

Dear All,

We have a Tcl/Tk application written using Python 2.2. Using this application we want to call some customizable Java APIs. I tried porting Tcl/Tk application to Jython but not able to do the same as TKinter library is not available with JYthon.

Can you please help me in porting Tkinter application to Jython? Also kindly let me know how to do the same.
Thanks & Regards,
Sandip Desale

Not having Tkinter in Jython, you can either rewrite your app to be a
Java Swing app, or you can embed the Java JVM into the Python
interpreter as an importable library. I believe some projects exist to
enable the latter, although I don't know of a URL.

In response to my previous post I got an e-mail suggesting to look at
JPype; however that message wasn't posted to the list, despite a CC: to
py*********@pyt hon.org. And it seems that you haven't received the
message either.

Anyways, here's the URL for the JPype project which allows the use of
Java libraries from Python:

http://jpype.sourceforge.net/

I downloaded it for windows and it seems to work quite OK, although I
only did some toy-testing (opening a Swing filechooser window from
within PythonWin, for instance).

The purpose of the project is calling Java code from Python, and it has
some limited facilities to allow callbacks from Java to Python. I think
therefore that it fits very well what you and I would need: integration
of Java libraries into Python projects.

It does not, however, allow subclassing of Java classes in Python or
the other way round, and it does not allow calling of arbitrary Python
code from the JVM.

Cheers,

--Tim

Caution, newbie approaching... I'm trying to come up with a very simple Tkinter test application that consists of a window with a drop-down menu bar at the top and a grid of colored rectangles filling the remainder of the window. Mind you, this is a contrived test application to help me understand Tkinter and Python, not an actual application yet. I've trivially subclassed Tkinter.Canvas into ColorCanvas, added a bunch of ColorCanvases...

I am currently having trouble running a piece of code I have written. My main code is called new.py, and when I run it, it pops up the TKinter root window as specified. However, if I try perform a function that uses an imported module, the code crashes, giving me this error: Exception in Tkinter callback Traceback (most recent call last): File "C:\Python24\lib\lib-tk\Tkinter.py", line 1345, in __call__ return self.func(*args)

Hi all; A few years ago, I set about porting a PHP application from MySQL to PostgreSQL, after realizing that MySQL wasn't going to be able to handle it. In order to do this, I built a light, fast database abstraction layer which conforms to the behavior of the MySQL functions in PHP. This means that a large amount of porting work could be made simple using this porting layer if the application was originally used PHP's native MySQL...
