Jython Tutorial

Jython is the JVM implementation of the Python programming language. It is designed to run on the Java platform. Jython was created in 1997 by Jim Hugunin. It closely follows the standard Python implementation called CPython. Jython 2.7.0 was released in May 2015, which corresponds to CPython 2.7. This is an introductory tutorial, which covers the basics of Jython and explains how to handle its various modules and sub-modules.


This tutorial will be helpful for Java programmers who want to utilize important features of Python i.e. Simple Syntax, Rich Data Types and Rapid Application Development in Java code. This will also be useful for Pythonistas to import feature Java class library into the Python Environment.

This tutorial is made to make the programmers comfortable in getting started with Jython and its various functions.


Since Jython helps in integrating two very popular programming technologies namely Java and Python, a reasonable knowledge of both languages is required.
