What is Jython?

JPython was the first implementation of Python programming language in java. Then the project was moved to SourceForge and renamed Jython. Jython is a programming hybrid. It exhibits the strengths of both its parents, namely Java and Python. Since Jython is written in 100% pure java , scripts written using jython will run on top of any compliant Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Jython interpreter will support existing java libraries as if they were your own python modules.
I have been playing around with Jython for about 6 months now. I have an idea to start a mini-tutorial series out of the knowledge I gathered upto now. So stay tuned in to my blog ;)
