Wow, it looks like I hit a nerve here.
I guess my primary interest is getting pure Python libraries to work with my Jython implementation.
Or is it easier (i.e. less work) to import Java libraries instead?

Thanks  Jim for replying .

It is great news that sqlite3 is coming to jython. I am sure it will make
alot of people happy.

Pygame is something I wish to mess out with at some point , seams like an
easy way to work with graphics.

Swing is all nice and cool ,  and integrates perfectly with JAVA2D which
expands its capabilities . But I always like to keep my options open. I am
new with wxPython, and would like to try pyGTK . I cannot comment on
wxPython abilities but it seems to me easier to handle than Swing.

One more question , how can I connect a python and jython program ? I know
that jython follows closely the python syntax or should I say to the letter?
So I was wondering if the two could work together without too many steps.

Thanks for all the help!!!!
