I saw postings a few days ago about dynamic imports.  I have had trouble w/ dynamically importing when running my app from a .jar file.  For my little application invoking the following from within a function solved the problem.
            execfile(FileToImportString, globals(), globals())
 
Bear in mind I'm a newbie at Jython and know nothing about XML.
