Jython Rocks

Being a Python programmer for the past 3 and half years, today was the first time when I tried Jython, an implementation of Python in Java, which runs inside a JVM. I am porting one part of the project in Java, and I would like to examine some values interactively instead of going through the compile-execute-debug cycle. So I gave Jython a try...

And it surely rocks!!!

To test a class that I've written in Java, I started Jython in interactive mode, imported the class I want using Python style import's, and then just execute it! All done in comfortable interactive shell that has made Python suck a great learning language. It is also very easy to wrap up unit testing scripts. Now I just need to find some other excuses for not writing Java testing code...
