Please try to put the JAR file in your CLASSPATH.  Once you have placed the file in your CLASSPATH you should be able to invoke the Jython interpreter and import the necessary classes.

I'd use something such as the following if I were you:

from com.tictactec.ta.lib import Classname  # Of course replacing Classname with the name of the class you need

Hope this helps.

I am fairly clueless about Java. I have searched the mailing list, but
this isn't an easy thing to narrow down. So I haven't discovered my
answer, or have simply overlooked.

I have a 3rd party jar file which contains libraries that I need to
import into my Jython application.
This is the ta-lib-0.4.0.jar from http://www.ta-lib.org .

I have downloaded the file. I don't know where to put the file in my
directories in order for Jython to successfully import.

I naively put it into a directory and started the Jython interpreter in
that directory.

import os

sees the file just fine.


import com.tictactec.ta.lib
fails with a "no module named tictactec"

from com.tictactec import ta.lib
SyntaxError: mismatched input '.' expecting NEWLINE

Details:  Jython 2.5.1, Vista, Java 1.6.0_14-b08

Any help in getting this library available greatly appreciated.
Where to put the file, any Windows classpath editing. etc.
