Would it not benefit you to switch to coding in Jython? I'm not sure, I;ve only read little bits on Python/Jython.

As Rayman says, it is possible to mix python and Java code with Jython. Jython is the Python language implemented in Java, so you can call Java code from Jython, and compile Jython classes into object that can be accessed from Java.
There are disadvantages to this - Jython only implements the version 2.1 features of Python, so no list comprehensions or generators. Not all the Python libraries are available either, but since you have all the Java libraries available that is not a big issue.
Alternatively you could use a Java-Python bridge such as Jpype which allows you to interface Python and Java code.
If neither of these appeals, you can always recode the Python toJava or the Java to Python. Converting Java to Python is easier IMHO, since there are few language structures in Java that do not have an equivalent in Python, but Python has many features that would be hard to convert to Java.

Why don't you post some or all of your code so people can estimate whether it can be (which probbaly can) and with how much trouble converted to Java?
