Jython (Landmark)by Robert W. Bill
Synopses & Reviews
This book will help Java developers to increase application development and deployment, thus optimizing their overall efficiency.
A brief introduction is provided that shows the differences between Java and Jython, important to include so that the reader will have a better understanding of why their union is beneficial.
The remainder of the book teaches, through examples, how to use Jython. Intended for an experienced Java developer, this book assumes you understand the fundamentals to programming (i.e. loop statements, if.then, etc.). So, page space is focused on utilizing Jython with Java by covering the following: extending Python with java classes, modules, compiling, interpreters, design integration, etc.
www.newriders.com contains all code and applications developed in the book.
Book News Annotation:
This guide for Java developers details the use of Jython, a combination of Java and Python. The book provides a detailed study of Jython's syntax, statements and authors, supported with numerous examples. It then describes the integration of Jython and Java through Jython's byte-code compiler and explains the use of Java classes in Jython. Bill is a web, database, and application developer.
