PH> I suggested Python to my boss, but he wants to stick with Java as it is a
PH> much better-known language.

AE> What about Java with JPython scripting?

Crucial selling-point: the rest of a system implemented in Java "doesn't
know that" the bit written in JPython isn't written in Java: indeed, the
python classes constructed by JPython appear, to Java, to be Java
classes (I'm told).

And, being python, JPython is much easier to write than Java.
