I'm writing a swing application using Jython on eclipse, took me about 20 minute to get used to it. It's very easy.
I'll probably write one once I am finished with my apps - it's an application to process my online banking statements. I'm sick of having to copy paste the csv files into excel every month. But it's pretty much
1. get eclipse + pydev 2. configure pydev, add jython path etc 3. in your jython code:
After that, you can just do...
and the good ol java suggestion pops up. You don't get all the nice feature of the java editor like ctrl+shift+o (manage imports). Also due to its weak typing nature, ctrl+space on a class doesn't automatically give you a list of your private attributes.
My advice is, get used to it. It's PyDev, not JavaDev.
