just a short note on this topic:

We are currently developing a Java GUI for some 
Oracle project (using Oracle's JDeveloper 9i) and
have plans to integrate a reporting component based
on ReportLab/Jython. So we don't need Jython to add
scripting, but use Java in favour of Python only
because of the DB infrastructure provided by 
Oracle's Business Components (BC4J).
