Although coding traditional applets in Jython 2.5.x is not yet possible, it is easy to develop Java web start applications using the latest version of Jython.  The development of applets using Jython requires a compiler such as jythonc.  The jythonc compiler has not been brought forward into 2.5.x due incompatibilities with some of the newer language features.  However, web start applications are a viable alternative to applets, although they will not run directly within the web browser.  For more information on how to get started, you may wish to take a look here:  http://jythonpodcast.hostjava.net/jythonbook/chapter13.html#applets-and-java-web-start

 
Ah.  I don't think webstart will do what I had in mind in this instance.  I'll keep it in mind for other things though.

So thanks for the info, even if it is not what I wanted to hear.  :-)

Cheers, Rasjid.
