Tim-

 

In addition to the direction which Charlie gave you, it may be of assistance to check out the article I posted for Jython Montly in last month's edition.  I toyed with scripting Jython using the scripting.dev.java.net project a bit and I wrote the article about my findings.  You can read it at http://wiki.python.org/jython/JythonMonthly/Articles/October2006/1.

 

Thanks,

Josh
