I am new to Jython...is there a reference sheet available for download? I am looking for something similar to that which Groovy has to offer.

Jython is Python for jvm. So you can check up python constructs.
Jython 2.1 should support all python programming constructs upto python 2.1

I knew that Jython is a "JVM" interpretation of Python, but I did not realize that both Python and Jython were the same syntactically. I will find a Python reference.

Thanks for your help!

If you know groovy , please do discuss the features you are looking for in python. OR if you can contrast them.

kind of a shame that Jython seems to have fallen behind the C implementation of Python, though. version 2.1 was a long time ago in Python terms; i'd hate to be stuck coding for it.

I will review Python a bit more and then I will post my thoughts about additions. I just began to study Jython within the past week. One thing I can say is that I was attracted to Groovy since the syntax was so similar to that of Java. Jython always seemed to have a "different" syntax than Java. This is one of the reasons why I think a reference sheet would assist my efforts.

Thanks for your help...take care.
