Deployment of Jython applications varies from container to container. However, they are all very similar and usually allow deployment of WAR file or exploded directory web applications. Deploying to “the cloud” is a different scenario all together. Some cloud environments have typical Java application servers available for hosting, while others such as the Google App Engine run a bit differently. In this chapter, we’ll discuss how to deploy web-based Jython applications to a few of the more widely used Java application servers. We will also cover deployment of Jython web applications to the Google App Engine and mobile devices. Although many of the deployment scenarios are quite similar, this chapter will walk through some of the differences from container to container.
