Embedding Java in Python
So I'm working under a few limitations here: our product is working currently under Python 2.3 and I don't have the option to use Jython at all. I have a third party product that is available with Java, C++ and .NET apis and I've been a Java developer in a past incarnation, so I'd like to use that option.
Am I just out of luck? I found ways to wrapper C/C++ code in Python, but nothing of the like for Java.
thanks in advance,

Wait, why can't you use Jython? Explain.

Take a look at http://jpype.sourceforge.net/]Jpype - it may do what you want. It lets you call Java code from Python.
There is also PythonNet, which does the same for .NET.
If the C/C++ code is in a DLL, you may be able to call it directly with ctypes.

Well, simply put, changing to Jython from 2.3 isn't a risk I'm interested in undertaking at this point in the release cycle. The Jython site seems to suggest that the latest version incorporates feature support for 2.1 and 2.2, but makes no mention of 2.3 or forward.

Jython will have a new release. It was selected as one of the grants given by PSF in 2004. Don't give up on Jython just yet. Jython Grant Proposal
