Are you sure this works with jython? From the web page:
The jTkinter module is a complete java/JNI implementation of the
builtin python modules _tkinter for use with the JPython-1.1
I think it needs bringing up to date for jython, which would be
really nice; I'd be happy to try to add Tix to it if it worked with
jython 2.x. Finn, can you confirm this?
I know it is not a "pure" Java solution, but there
are a lot of people like myself who need to use
some of the massive Java libraries, and are looking
to Jython to help provide a practical solution.
Moreover, it would help to extend the completeness and
interoperability of the CPython/Jython pair to include GUI work,
which is an added plus.
