JPython is an implementation of the object-oriented scripting language Python, seamlessly integrated with the Java platform. It features high-level built-in data types, dynamic typing, packages, classes, and interactive compilation to Java bytecodes. The integration with Java includes the ability to call Java methods, create instances of Java classes, subclass Java classes within JPython, and use JPython classes from Java. JPython is a powerful companion to the Java language for those tasks where a higher-level language is appropriate.
