Hallo all,
jython/python is pretty new to me, but my first experiences are very good. I will use it more in the future, definitively!
What I would like to know is, if there are j/python enabled IDEs around.
I really would like to use one with all the modern features like auto completion, object browsing, project management, etc.
Does anybody know if there'll be an eclipse plugin
for jython?

i don't think there is one for jython as such.
But yeah python has many.
Python ships with an IDE called Idle.
Komodo
Active Python (win32/COM bindings) from activestate has a neat IDE, PythonWin. you could use that.
For GUI, there are tons again!
BlackAdder
for Pyqt(Python wrapper for QT gui toolkit)
Boa Constructor for WxPython (Python wrapper for wxWindows library) then there is python works pro too.
I think VIM or Scite s'd be enough.

I'm using the MED http://www.utopia-planitia.de/
- a shareware.
The Tool knows Phython syntax and it's pretty easy
to integrate other tools (or executing them).
I integrated the execution of the JavaVM with the appropriate parameters for jython. I now can develop Jython from within this tool.

But, I'm still searching for a more sophisticated tool.
Thanx

Here's some others:
Forte works ok.
JEdit and Jext are Jython friendly.
I've been using emacs and switching between python mode and jde.

Has anyone heard if Eclipse is planning on having a jython module? It seems to be a natural fit to incorporate it.

Eclipse community is busy porting the version 2.0 of Eclipse to other operationg environments. But since Eclipse is pluggable, there will be a Jython development tooling built upon it.

I think that Jedit might be a good choice for you. You can download a plugin with a Jython interpreter.

Thanks a lot to all of you!
I think, I will take a look at Jedit, until there will be an Eclipse plug-in (my favourite so far).
If anybody is interested in my workaround for the MED let me know!
Greetings, Mark

Ok, I will do so, but please be patient.
I'll be back on Monday and give you a complete HOW-TO - until then try this:
- Download and install the Jython package from the Jython.org page.
- Create a new Tool in the MED and call it Jython.
- Use the java.exe from the jdk as the executable and use the parameters (CLASSPATH, Jars, etc.) from the Jython.bat file of the Jython install-package.
- There should be a feature, with which you can say where the output shuold be streamed.
- You can choose the appropriate syntax-highlighting from the File menu.
- Add an Icon in the new tools options (I used one from the Jython page) and create a shortcut.
Let me know if it works, it should be pretty simple.
Regards, Mark

Go to the file menu, there should be an entry like
apply file class or similar (unfortunately I'm using the german version, so I'm not sure about the correct english label).
There you can choose the correct profile for syntax-highlighting.
Greetings,
Mark
