Frank Wierzbicki on Jython and Switching from Sun to Startup
Wierzbicki gives a quick introduction to Jython, which gives developers the ability to write applications in Python and bundle them up for easy drop-in to Java environments. There's also been some recent work on running the popular Django web framework on Jython. The Django-Jython project allows developers to deploy Django as a WAR file instead of the regular Django deployment. It also allows the Django developer to harness the wide variety of tools for the Java platform. Wierzbicki concludes with information about his recent Jython development book.
