PyAMF server/client using Jython with Swing

Now that the upcoming Jython 2.5 is getting closer to it's final release, I thought it would be nice to create an example that shows PyAMF running on top of Jython. Jython is an implementation of the high-level, dynamic, object-oriented language Python written in 100% Pure Java, and seamlessly integrates with the Java platform. It thus allows you to run Python scripts on any Java platform.

Below you see a screenshot of the example, which was created using Java's native Swing UI toolkit. It allows you to start a simple AMF server on localhost:8000 and embeds an AMF client that makes calls to that server. This particular example doesn't interact with an Adobe Flash Player application, it simply shows it's possible to run PyAMF servers and clients on top of the upcoming Jython release.

You can browse or download the source from the Subversion repository. You can find instructions on how to run the example yourself in the documentation.
