    Summary     : A Java implementation of the Python language
    Description :
    Jython is an implementation of the high-level, dynamic, object-oriented
    language Python seamlessly integrated with the Java platform. The
    predecessor to Jython, JPython, is certified as 100% Pure Java. Jython is
    freely available for both commercial and non-commercial use and is
    distributed with source code. Jython is complementary to Java and is
    especially suited for the following tasks: Embedded scripting - Java
    programmers can add the Jython libraries to their system to allow end
    users to write simple or complicated scripts that add functionality to the
    application. Interactive experimentation - Jython provides an interactive
    interpreter that can be used to interact with Java packages or with
    running Java applications. This allows programmers to experiment and debug
    any Java system using Jython. Rapid application development - Python
    programs are typically 2-10X shorter than the equivalent Java program.
    This translates directly to increased programmer productivity. The
    seamless interaction between Python and Java allows developers to freely
    mix the two languages both during development and in shipping products.
