I have not used Jython, so others might have more to say, but the primary reason to use Jython is to use the Java libraries, especially the window toolkits.

Allen nailed it. Jython makes it possible to use Python to script Java classes or to use Java classes in a Python program. If you don't need that functionality, you don't need Jython.
