I'm using numarray objects basically like data containers for fast I/O purposes in the context of pytables. I'm thinking now to port part of my code to Java, and I'd like to use Jython to easy the transition. I've seen that a there is a port of Numeric to Jython (http://jnumerical.sourceforge.net/), and I thought that I could use these Numeric objects as containers. Unfortunately, there are a couple of objects that pytables relies on, namely RecArray and CharArray, that are not supported by Numeric.
My questions are:
- I think that both RecArray and CharArray modules are written in pure python, so the porting to Jython should be relatively easy, provided I'm successful making them to use Numeric objects instead of NumArray objects. What do you think? Would that be feasible?
- Is there any effort going on in order to have an implementation of numarray ready for use in Jython?
