Re: Is JPythonFrame full functional?

Let me please add two more things:

1) if you typed "print 1+1" you would see "2" displayed

2) there is a method in RunJPython named 'eval' which will return the
   PyObject result from evaluating an expression.  As far as I can tell,
   however, it is not used in the editor environment.

I do not believe Curtis (the author) intended this to be a "Jython Console", which does display the toString() value of any object that is returned. To my knowledge there are only 3 "editor/runners" for Jython: this one, Jext, and jedit. [There is also a in the Jython "demo" section of their distribution (which I've also been including in more recent installers for Windows and Linux) that does some emulation of a command-line interface but does not have an editor.]

jedit has a jython plug-in which does give you a 'console' feel. The only problem (a show-stopper for us) is that it does not allow new protocols to be registered (thus we cannot access image data using the adde: protocol). Jext is currently our "mini-IDE" of choice (not the current release, but the CVS version plus a few additions we've handed to the author). I do not know if either of these would be easy to integrate into your application as you described before.
