            I've been looking at python as a scripting language to call from
java.  I initially started looking at Jython but the problem is that Jython
runs in the JVM and I miss out a lot of functionality that python has
(especially PythonCOM).
    Next I looked at JPE (Java-Python Extension) which seemed to work as a
good bridge but I can't get to it compile!  I also looked at JPI but there's
not a lot of information on that.

    My question is, does anybody know of a java - python bridge that has
been written and I can take advantage of.

    All suggestions welcome, including weird and wacky!!
