"Jython is a python implementation that allows you to run python
programs within a Java environment. It was originally created by
Jim Hugunin in late 1997. He explored that Java could be as fast as
C for simple numerical benchmarks, and he also discovered that it
was easy to translate Python to Java by hand.
"What exactly is Jython? Jython is a set of Java classes that
allows Python bytecode to run on a Java Virtual Machine. Using Java
Virtual Machine for Python has many advantages."
