Chapter 8. Modules and Packages for Code Reuse

Up until this chapter, we have been looking at code at the level of the interactive console and simple scripts. This works well for small examples, but when your program gets larger, it becomes necessary to break programs up into smaller units. In Jython, the basic building block for these units in larger programs is the module.

Imports for Reuse

Breaking code up into modules helps to organize large code bases. Modules can be used to logically separate code that belongs together, making programs easier to understand. Modules are helpful for creating libraries that can be imported and used in different applications that share some functionality. Jython's standard library comes with a large number of ...
