While we are on topic, I am having some trouble understanding JPype
classpath. How do I init the JVM with the folder in which the Python
program is located included in the classpath?

I tried
t = JPackage('.').test

That did not work.

My environment variable includes current folder in the classpath

I tried passing it as an argument to startJVM. Didn't help.

I think my main use is going to be using CPython with a few Java custom
classes and if anyone has a snippet on this it would really help me.
