The Definitive Guide to Jython: Python for the Java Platform (Softcover)
"Dear Reader: With Jython you enjoy the increased productivity and clarity of Python, and the ability to integrate with existing Java™ libraries. You get the best of both worlds: the elegance of Python, and the enterprise-readiness and maturity of the JVM. The Definitive Guide to Jython explores the Python programming language from the ground up, pointing out along the way details that are specific to Jython. If you are unfamiliar with the Python language, then you can get started here, but you will also learn about the differences between Jython and standard CPython as you go." — From the back cover

Continued from the back cover: “Once you have the basics of the language, you’ll want to put it into use. This book covers a variety of topics which will help you harness the power of Jython. You will learn how to develop dynamic applications and scripts, and access databases from Jython to build powerful database applications. Fundamental to getting the most out of Jython is Java integration, and this book encourages you to use Java within Jython code as well as Jython within Java code.
“Jython has matured a lot between the last couple of versions and it is now compliant with modern versions of the Python language. This means that you can now take advantage of Python frameworks such as Django and Pylons, which are both covered in this book. We will also provide you with a foundation to begin using Java Servlet and Java Swing technologies with Jython.
