hi!

they are on the same machine.
basically there is an application that does some user modelling and its in
Python. the application (bunch of .py scripts) have an interface that you
use to access user models.
the java app will simply do some xml stuff at the end of which it will
access the user model through the interface.
basically what i'd like to know is if i have
#test.py
def foo(blah):
    return blah += 5

can i call foo from a Java class? more importantly what would i need to
install on the machine to be able to do that. the machine in question is a
PDA so there are some limitations on what can be installed and made to run
on it. Python runs and so does Java.

cheers
