JPype - Java to Python integration

JPype - Java to Python integration: "JPype is an effort to allow python programs full access to java class libraries. This is achieved not through re-implementing Python, as Jython/JPython has done, but rather through interfacing at the native level in both Virtual Machines.

Eventually, it should be possible to replace Java with python in many, though not all, situations. JSP, Servlets, RMI servers and IDE plugins are good candidates.

Once this integration is achieved, a second phase will be started to separate the Java logic from the Python logic, eventually allowing the bridging technology to be used in other environments, I.E. Ruby, Perl, COM, etc ..."

Zope.org - Python For .NET

Zope.org - Python For .NET: "Python for .NET

Python for .NET is a near-seamless integration of the Python runtime with the .NET Common Language Runtime (CLR). It lets you script and build applications in Python, using CLR services and components written in any language that targets the CLR (C#, Managed C , VB.NET, etc.)."

DotGNU Portable.NET FAQ

DotGNU Portable.NET FAQ: "Why doesn't my C/C application work that I built with Visual Studio.NET?
Usually, the C/C applications that are output by Visual Studio.NET are not pure IL binaries. They contain x86 native code, and depend on all kinds of Microsoft-specific libraries. Such applications will never work with a pure-IL engine such as 'ilrun'.

Apparently there are switches that can be supplied to Visual Studio.NET that force it to output pure-IL binaries. But even then, there will still be dependencies on other Microsoft libraries. Your mileage may vary.

Some people have suggested interfacing 'ilrun' to Wine so as to pick up many of the Windows dependencies. This may work, but we need someone to volunteer to do it first.

If your application is written in C, and does not depend upon Windows-specific features, then you can recompile it using the C language front-end for 'cscc'. The resulting binary is likely to be more portable than that produced by Visual Studio.NET.

Update: more recent versions of Visual Studio.NET apparently generate IL that is more pure. Your mileage may still vary though."

Light-weight Approach to AOP for Python

Light-weight Approach to AOP for Python

Improve modularity with aspect-oriented programming

Improve modularity with aspect-oriented programming: "Aspect-oriented programming (AOP) is a new programming technique that allows programmers to modularize crosscutting concerns (behavior that cuts across the typical divisions of responsibility, such as logging). AOP introduces aspects, which encapsulate behaviors that affect multiple classes into reusable modules. With the recent release of AspectJ by Xerox PARC, Java developers can now take advantage of the modularization AOP can provide. This article introduces AspectJ and illustrates the design benefits that result from its use."

Oops! Official Python 2.3.4 doesn't come with pyxml

I decided to use Python 2.3.4 for Windows from python team instead of Python 2.3.3 from ActiveState since 2.3.3 has a bug relating to bsddb. BTQueue 0.0.16 and later are packaged with python 2.3.4. Unfortunately, I forgot that pyxml was not installed by default.

BTQueue 0.0.18 should be released very soon.
