Jython client-side scripts
I am looking at Jython to create interactive client-side applications that interact with the web browser in the way that traditional Java would. Before I try this I am wondering, is this is even feasible?

I don't know too much about Jython but it should be possible.

Yes it is. Jython compiles to java .class files that can be put into a jar file and distributed just like any other java program. There is a page of Jython demo applets on the Jython website.
1) you would need to distribute the Jython runtime as well as your jython code, so the download will be much bigger than the equivalent java applet. This is not such a big issue in this age of broadband connections, but it would suck for anyone with a dial-up.
