Alternatives - JVM-PVM Integration
JPype is an effort to allow python programs full access
to java class libraries. This is achieved not through re-implementing
Python, as Jython/JPython has done, but rather through interfacing
at the native level in both Virtual Machines.
JPE is a seamless, complete, and efficient integration
of Java and standard Python (C Python).
Independent compilation of Java
GCJ is a portable, optimizing, ahead-of-time compiler
for the Java Programming Language. It can compile:
Java source code directly to native machine code
Java source code to Java bytecode (class files)
Java bytecode to native machine code.
- Java -> compiled library; compiled library -> SWIG; SWIG + Python
