I agree with Ken's view 100 percent. Especially in the
enterprise B-2-B market, Java API's (J2EE, EJB's, etc.)
have become mandatory. JPython gives access to all of
that -- no wrappers needed! -- along with everything that
is great about Python. I would love to see JPython
become the main Python vehicle.
