from Barthelemy Dagenais
Py4J enables Python programs running in a Python interpreter to dynamically access Java objects in a Java Virtual Machine.
Py4J enables Python programs running in a Python interpreter to dynamically access Java objects in a Java Virtual Machine. Methods are called as if the Java objects resided in the Python interpreter and Java collections can be accessed through standard Python collection methods. Py4J also enables Java programs to call back Python objects.
What's New in This Release:* Added the ability to import packages (e.g., java_import(gateway.jvm, 'java.io.*'))
* Added support for pattern filtering in JavaGateway.help() (e.g., gateway.help(obj,'get*Foo*Bar'))
* Added support for automatic conversion of Python collections (list, set, dictionary) to Java collections. User JavaGateway(auto_convert=True) or an explicit convertor.
* Created two Eclipse features: one embeds the Py4J Java library. The other provides a default GatewayServer that is started when Eclipse starts. Both features are available on the new Py4J Eclipse update site: http://py4j.sourceforge.net/py4j_eclipse
* Redesigned the module decomposition of Py4J: there are no more mandatory circular dependencies among modules.
* Trac 0.5 milestone
System Requirements:No special requirements.
