I have been asked to maintain some java code that was developed on top of Jython 2.1. When testing existing code against Jython 2.5.1 I've noticed that the PyJavaInstance class is no longer present in the Jython API and therefore get a compilation error. Has it been replaced with another class? I tried to find one but with no success. More explicitly, I would like to check if a PyObject is a representation of a Java object. Consider the following code:

somePyObject instanceof PyJavaInstance

Is there an easy way to obtain the same behaviour with Jython 2.5.1? Thanks!

Kind regards,
Thanos Tsounis
