JCC is a C++ code generator for producing the code necessary to call
into Java classes from CPython via Java's Native Invocation Interface (JNI).
JCC generates C++ wrapper classes that hide all the gory details of JNI
access as well Java memory and object reference management.
JCC generates CPython types that make these C++ classes accessible from a
Python interpreter. JCC attempts to make these Python types pythonic by
detecting iterators and property accessors. Iterators and mappings may also
be declared to JCC.
JCC has been built on Python 2.3 to 2.7, on Python 3.6, and has been used
with various Java Runtime Environments such as Sun Java 1.5 and 1.6, Apple's
Java 1.5 and 1.6 on Mac OS X, open source Java OpenJDK 1.7 builds as well as
Oracle Java 1.7 and 1.8.
JCC is supported on Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris and Windows.
JCC is written in C++ and Python. It uses Java's reflection API to do its
job and needs a Java Runtime Environment to be present to operate.
JCC is built with distutils or setuptools::
python setup.py build
sudo python setup.py install
Setuptools is required to build JCC on Python 2.3.
JCC's setup.py file needs to be edited before building JCC to specify the
location of the Java Runtime Environment's header files and libraries.
