I also have a Jython Console plug-in for Eclipse.  I think the PyDev project has recently created their own version as well loosly based on the DLTK console.  It may make sense to start a separate open-source project around this so we don't all invent our own flavor.  We'd probably end up with a much more functional end result as well.  I've been mulling this over for awhile but just never had the gumption to go ask my boss about open-sourcing our implementation.  Is anyone else interested in this?
If you feel that the amount of extra work you may need to polish/document
the sources and make it available on sourceforge (or google code, etc.) is
low, having such an open source project would be great !

Hi all,

Does anyone have a sample Eclipse plugin that embeds Jython ?
(jython.jar standalone as well as jython scripts). Or at least
pointers or prior experience (good/bad) with this scheme ?

Do you mean a plug-in for working with Jython code in Eclipse, or do
you mean the Jython runtime packaged as an Eclipse plug-in so you can
do plug-in development using Jython?

For the former I use Pydev, and for the latter I use a plugin that I
put together.  I can't give you the code, but I will try to answer any
questions you have if you are encountering difficulties.

The latter.

I received many answers (some of which were not cc'd to the list),
thanks everybody !

Jeff Emanuel send me some example code of his own 'Jython console'
plugin whose size is manageable, so I am certainly going to start with
this and I will come back to this mailing-list if I have issues.

The amount of answers received in a short amount of time makes me
believe that this topic would make an excellent 'Jython Monthly' article.
Jeff, David, folks, is there anyone with enough skills and time to get
into this ?
