News from Jython world


Frank Wierzbicki and Ted Leung have been hired by Sun. Frank is a
key Jython developer and is specifically hired to work full time on
Jython, a version of the Python interpreter that runs on top of the
JVM and provides full access to Java libraries. After a period where
the development had slowed, Jython was recently getting seriously
back on track. Now it's getting even better !

Don't wait too much ... Jython is very useful RIGHT NOW if you live
in the Java Universe.

Cheers,

SB

Great news! Having to go back to the Java world might not be such a
turn-off in the near future ;-)

Development on Jython over the last year or so has been superb, and
it's good to see that Sun are getting really focused on dynamic
languages on the JVM. It may be that they are trying to play keep-up
with Microsoft and their support of IronPython - but regardless of the
reasons it is good news for Jython and Frank W, and for the Python
community in general.

A Sun endorsement of Jython means the possibility of more Python jobs
out there for us all in the future given the ubiquity of the JVM in
the enterprise and willingness of corporations to accept such
endorsements!

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. I guess it was inevitable, but with Jython stuck at Python 2.1, it's not really the same language as CPython is today. You still have to type "from __future__...

Hello I found that jython catches exact java exceptions, not their subclasses. Is there some way to get around this limitation (or error) ? My program has class representing database source and specialed classes for particulars databases. Now there are two options - to include exception (subclasses of SQLException) for every db in except (so all drivers has to be present) or to move methods to subclasses.

Hi, I'm looking for a suitable thesis topic, so I hope that I can gather some advice on this area that I'm thinking of. Jython appears as a relatively successful attempt to bridge Python to Java and I find that the best part is that it can convert Python codes into Java codes. As said in the webpage, it is a python interpreter written in Java. I am wondering if it is worth reversing this, that is, a Java interpreter implemented in...

Is Jython development dead or has it just seemed that way for over a year?. The jython.org website has a recent new appearance (but no new content) and there is some message traffic on the developer site at Sourceforge. However nothing has been released for over a year (i.e. no support for Python 2.3, 2.4 or 2.5). Is seems that IronPython may have a better future than Jython. I know this is a bit of a troll but I'm concerned about...

Hi, all. I'm in a situation where I need to be writing a bunch of quick-y (hopefully) self-contained programs that anyone can run from a web page. Java applets are the obvious way to do this. However, I don't know much Java, and, frankly, right now I don't feel much like learning it. I *am* pretty good at Python, however. It looks like Jython is for me. That said, I have two questions: (1) Am I thinking straight here? Or is there some...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
