It is now possible to run Jython on Google AppEngine!
I’m delighted to announce the opening of the xhaus.com open source software portal.
On the portal you will find source code, documentation, issue trackers, etc, for open source software that we have published.
So, here we are again with translating cpython socket semantics to java socket semantics, in order to correctly implement the cpython socket API on jython.
The latest issue is socket shutdown.

I’m tremendously excited this week; it looks like the work I did on supporting asynchronous sockets and select in jython has paid off.
Back in 2007, I updated the jython socket module to support client-side ssl sockets. This post will describe how to configure jython so that it behaves like cpython, in relation to acceptance of SSL certificates.
Back in 2005, I modified the jython socket module to support timeouts. Brian Zimmer checked in that patch, since I did not have jython SVN commit rights at that time.
I wrote a documentation page about the new timeout support, and placed it on xhaus.com. Due to a rearrangement of the xhaus.com website, I am moving that page to this blog.
It should be noted that the timeout functionality has been superceded by the further work that I did to make the socket module support asychronous I/O. So you should refer to the jython socket module documentation to see how to use timeouts. This page appears here solely for historical purposes.
Over the Christmas holidays in 2003, I wrote a design for how Asynchronous Socket I/O might be implemented in jython, using java.nio. I wrote up some notes in HTML, and placed them on a group of pages on xhaus.com. These notes were the basis of the design which I later used to implement asynchronous I/O for jython sockets, which is now a part of the jython distribution.
Although these notes are now out-of-date, having been surpassed by the actual implementation itself, I am publishing them here for historical purposes. The notes are broken down into four main areas.
