I’m looking for a scripting language that would give me complete access to both java libraries and Microsoft’s component object model (COM).
I was thrilled to get the sample groovy programs demonstrating jawin and org.codehaus.groovy.scriptom.ActiveXProxy working.
(These classes endow groovy with COM scripting capabilities). I did a google search for similar demonstrations with jruby and jython and could find no such examples.
Can I expect to be able to use jawin and org.codehaus.groovy.scriptom.ActiveXProxy in jython and jruby?
Can anyone comment on how effective jython would be for scripting COM? (I know ActiveState Python is effective for this, but that does not give us access to java libraries, does it?) Can someone point me to some examples?
