    Questions on installing Jython

      I have installed jython on my local machine and followed the steps in the BLCLI help. When testing whether jython is in fact working via NSH, I get the following:


      W7% bljython

      nsh: command not found: bljython


      The question is, should jython be installed on my local workstation (Win7 x64) or on the application server? The BLCLI help is not clear in that regard.

          Install jython wherever the jython scripts will run from.

            Understood. Eventually I'll have to install on the application server so the jython scripts can run from there, but for now I want to run jython locally.


            Any ideas on what the problem could be then with my local installation? I used Jython 2.5.2 and we're running of BBSAS.

              bljython is not in your path.  it should be in <install>/NSH/br or <install>/NSH/bin

              • 4. Questions on installing Jython

                Both <install>/NSH/br and <install>/NSH/bin are in my path. When I run "bljython" from a command prompt it is found, but when I run "bljython" from a NSH prompt it is not found.

                  Echo $PATH in the nsh shell?  What’s in your path?

                    * The last two PATH entries are there when I "echo %PATH%" from a CMD prompt. The first three entries are being added to PATH by some other method (NSH?).

                      I was digging around in <install>/NSH/bin & <install>/NSH/br, and I noticed that there is no "bljython.exe" or "bljython.cfg"...but there is "bljythonexe.exe" and "bljythonexe.cfg".


                      For testing whether jython is installed properly, the BLCLI help states to run "bljython". If I switch to use "bljythonexe" instead, all is well. I ended up renaming "bljythonexe.exe" to just "bljython.exe" in \bin (and the "bljythonexe.cfg" to "bljython.cfg" in \br), and that worked as well.


                      Not sure whether its just the BLCLI help that isn't correct or whether I should have "bljython.exe" rather than "bljythonexe.exe" from the installation.

                        Bill or whomever can answer: Should this situation be raised to support for correcting the mismatch in naming (or correcting the documentation)?

                          is there a bljython.bat?


                          if so, from w/in nsh you need to run 'bljython.bat'.
