django-jython 1.0b1 Released!

Posted by Leo Soto on .

I've just made the first official beta release of the django-jython project: a collection of utilities and database backends for Django development on the JVM.

You can download it here. I've also written the release notes, detailing the important changes since the code was produced under the Google Summer of Code program last year. Here is a summary with the more important points:

  • modjy integration and war management command updated to work with Jython 2.5b2 and later.
  • Added doj.test.xmlrunner.junitxmlrunner, a Django test runner for producing JUnit-compatible XML output (useful for integration with continous integration tools like hudson, cruise-control, etc)
  • Compatible with the 1.0.X branch of Django
  • Compatible with Jython 2.5b2 and later releases For now, PostgreSQL is still the only supported database. But we have important progress on MySQL, Oracle and MS-SQL database backends which hopefully will make it into next beta releases. The plan is to get the 1.0 release out a week or two after the final release of Jython 2.5.0.

As usual, feedback will be very appreciated and bugs should be reported on the issue tracker.
