The Definitive Guide to Jython Is Published

The Definitive Guide to Jython: Python for the Java Platform has been published. This is a work in which five authors: Jim Baker, Victor Ng, Leo Soto, Frank Wierzbicki, and myself, began to author early in 2009. The book covers much detail on the Jython language and it's usage. It was a much needed addition to the library of Jython books that are available today as this book focuses on Jython 2.5.1...the most current release to-date. Many methodologies that hadn't been formally documented previously, such as the object factory pattern, with-statement, django and jython, and concurrency, have been documented in detail in this text.

If you are interested in developing with Jython, I recommend you take a look at this book today. There is also an online open source version of the book that can be found at, but all of it's contents have not yet been updated to include finalized versions of all chapters. I am working on converting the .doc formatted final versions into restructured text at this time, but it is a lengthy process.

Thanks to all of my fellow authors and to the team at Apress for all of their hard work!
