Jython will work ... if ReST is jython-compatible. for this is must be
python 2.1 level or thereabout, and not use any extensions.
Otherwise ... you can indeed much around the command-line and
Runtime.exec*(). This is asking for a lot of headache though ...
if you have the option, you can build a python program and publish its
interface either via SOAP or CORBA, then call that web-service from Java.
Lastly, you can interface python's VM at the native code level. you can
do it yourself if you know C programming, or you can use JPE
(http://sourceforge.net/projects/jpe/) if you can get it working.
I hope this helps,
