I've sent a mail calling for contributors to the Python version of Retic,
which you can read right under.
Well, I'd ask the same question to you Jython developers.
Anyone interested in helping me developing enterprise-class EAI/ETL
software in Jython is welcome.
I think it is an opportunity to show that Jython isn't just good at writing
prototypes before writing the real programs in Java.
Jython is so simple that it permits to develop in a really fast way,
programs that are fully usable.
I won't tell you anyway why Jython is great, you already know. I just want
to show companies that it exits and that if fits their needs.
Hope you'll share my optimism.
