Thanks. Maybe I should say that I knew and had used both Python and Java 
and had used them in one way or another. I also knew and had used 
Jython. I am more interested about how both can complement each other. 
My problem is that as I used one of the two in a project (say Python), 
my knowledge on the other one (Java) slacks off a bit and finds that I 
have to re-learn parts of Java if I need it again... Is this a problem 
of no solution or are there some tips to reduce the rate of slack off in 

I must say that Python/Jython/Java package rings so homely that I will 
love to keep.
