You don't have to choose between them. You can program Swing applications
in Jython. And Jython is just a jar that you can bundle in another jar for
distribution just like any other Java jar. You will have to understand Java
code to learn Swing, though. I suggest also looking into the
Swing Application Framework and Netbeans.
However, I would look at PyQt first (if the license requirements are OK).
PyQT is well thought out, consistent, and featureful. And then maybe try
wxPython if you need a more liberal license. wxPython is clunky and
inconsistent, but gets the job done.
