Hey Dheeraj, following are the differences between Python and Jython:

  • Reference implementation of Python, called CPython, is written in C language. Jython on the other hand is completely written in Java and is a JVM implementation.

  • Standard Python is available on multiple platforms. Jython is available for any platform with a JVM installed on it.

  • Standard Python code compiles to a .pyc file, while Jython program compiles to a .class file.

  • Python extensions can be written in C language. Extensions for Jython are written in Java.

  • Jython is truly multi-threaded in nature. Python however uses the Global Interpreter Lock (GIL) mechanism for the purpose.

  • Both implementations have different garbage collection mechanisms.
