Frank Cohen's Blog

Jython 2.2 is the first major overhaul of the Jython dynamic scripting language in 4 years. Jython 2.2 implements the internal architecture of Python 2.2 and includes numerous features from Python 2.3.

Jython is a Java implementation of the Python language. It allows users to compile Python source code to Java byte codes, and run the resulting bytecodes on any Java Virtual Machine.

Jython 2.2 has support for most of Python 2.2 and numerous features from Python 2.3. The new release - the first major overhaul in 4 years - includes many major changes:

  • new-style classes
  • Java Collections integration
  • PEP 302 implementation
  • iterators
  • generators
  • __future__ division
  • support for running on JDK1.5 and 1.6
  • new installer
  • a significant number of features to bring Jython in line with CPython

The 2.2. download is available here.
