[SciPy-User] OT: calling Java from Python
Thu Dec 23 14:49:30 CST 2010
This is a bit OT, but y'all tend to be a great resource for lots of
stuff, and this is python-for-science related:
Are there any active projects supporting calling Java from CPython?
It seems JPE and JPype are both pretty dead, and I don't see much else
except maybe Babel:
-- thought that seems kind of like yet another language!)
My use case:
Lately Unidata has put a lot more emphasis on the JAVA implementation of
the netcdf libraries that the C one, so it has a lot of nifty features
not supported for C, and therefore for Python.
There is this project for calling the netcdf JAVA libs from MATLAB:
Which made me think that it would be nice to have something similar for
Python. With the Python C api and JNI (and maybe Cython), it should be
possible, but I sure don't want to start doing that from scratch.
gnu CNI looks promising, too.
There is a lot going on in the JAVA world, it would be nice to access
some of that.
Are any of you doing anything like this? Any thoughts? There
