Jython is an implementation of high-level, dynamic, object-oriented language Python
written in 100% Pure Java. We can run Python code on Java platform with the support of Jython.
Python web framework Django could also run on Jython now. Jim Baker has written an article: Django on Jython is almost there to
show that even there's still more work to do, Django could run on Jython platform.
Django web framework is described as "a high-level Python
Web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design." Django is like Rails, however, Django provides more exciting functions than Rails. I like Django
because Django is elegant and smart. Beside, with Python's elegant grammar, dynamic language web-development is
fast speed and full of enjoy.
Django 1.0 is about to release at early September. And it get a lot of applause from users and Django developers.
Django is likely to become a "killer application" that allows developers to choose Jython without regret.
If you wanna learn a little more about Django framework, there is a little tutorial that I wrote on
DeveloperWorks about Django framework. Please feel free to contcat me if you meet some roadblocks while reading this
