Not sure what you mean by this - I am, also, in a way going from Java
(language) to Python (since I coded in Java before), except staying with
Java (the platform) in the end. I'm sure someone here has a healthy critique
for this idea :-).

No, Webware.PSP relies on Webware.WebKit which is a Python application
server featuring Python servlets.
In fact, I don't think you can use our PSP from CGI even if you wanted to.
BTW don't be deceived by the CGI *adapters*. These are small programs that
shuttle requests between the web server and the app server. OneShot.cgi is
convenient for development (for reasons explained in the Install Guide).
WebKit.cgi there mostly for completeness.
Lately, I have been using mod_webkit which is very fast and works without

The app server doesn't have to serve general HTTP. But it *does* always
server servlets, often through a popular web server like Apache. However,
we do have an all-one-server as well.

If you want to run the WebKit app server from Jython, then it might be
do-able. If you want Webware.PSP pages to inherit Java's Servlet class and
work in that framework, I don't think that is going to work at all.
How about just giving Webware a try? ;-)
