Thanks for the feedback Josh,
I looked at PyDev and a few others - most were designed as full blown IDEs or plug-ins exclusive to Eclipse or NetBeans.  I wanted a simple Swing text editor component with Jython syntax highlighting. I have found http://fifesoft.com/rsyntaxtextarea/  which works incredibly well for my design constraints.  Its very well made with great examples.  I now have it working in my project (http://myrobotlab.org).  I can now code in Jython in an embedded text editor in my app.. just need to implement some of the bells & whistles - saving files, loading files etc..

Thanks again - hopefully replying with this info might help others in the same situation.

Regards,

Greg.

There is no Jython aware swing component contained within the Jython jar.  You may want to take a look at some of the IDEs that are available and offer Jython support.  Perhaps you will find something there that may help you out.  Specifically, you may wish to look a the code available for the open source Field project.


Good luck, and hope this helps!

Hello Jython Users !
I'm very new to Jython, but have successfully executed a few scripts in a small swing application.  The swing application has currently a JEditPane.  In order to do syntax high-lighting in my Java application I would need to write a JythonEditorKit and supporting classes.  

I would think that the idea of embedding a small Jython aware editor in a Java app would be a very common thing, and it has been done many times before.  Unfortunately, my Google-Fu appears to have failed me, and I can not find an example of such a thing.

Does the Jython Jar have a Jython aware (syntax high-lighting etc) swing component in it ?

And ideas or suggestions welcome.
Thanks !
