This two-part paper will introduce the Jython scripting language, and provides with enough knowledge to begin developing the own Jython-based applications. Jython is an implementation of Python that has been seamlessly integrated with the Java platform. Python is a powerful object-oriented scripting language used primarily in UNIX environments. Jython is extremely useful because it provides the productivity features of a mature scripting language while running on a JVM. Unlike a Python program, a Jython program can run in any environment that supports a JVM. Today, this means most major computing systems, including Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, most UNIX variants including all Linux systems, and all IBM systems.
