1. Jython is a Python interpreter (older version) implemented in Java. 
It accesses Java classes located on the same machine. I believe it has 
an interactive mode just like CPython. So you can experiment 
interactively with the behavior of Java code. You can also write test 
suites for Java code in Jython. This is one actual use of Jython.

2. Learning a different object model may help you understand Java better.
