Well, Cameron summed it up pretty good :)
I'd add that The only major (and yes I know it is VERY major)
funtionailty missing in JPype is the ability to subclass Java classes in
On the other hand JPype will (soon) have functionality that JPE doesnt
have. Java arrays can already (in 0.4) be iterated as regular Python
collections. Version 0.5 will add that same behavior for Java
collections (Map, List, Set, Iterator).
Of course, the above is based on the JPE documentation, because I havent
been able to get JPE to work.
About Cameron's suggestion, sure. I'll do it as soon as I (or someone
else) can get both JPype and JPE to work so they can be compared through
more than just their respective documentation.
