Ensure you have installed Anaconda/Miniconda. Instructions can be found here.
Install from the conda-forge software channel:
conda install -c conda-forge jpype1
From source - Requirements¶
Either the Sun/Oracle JDK/JRE Variant or OpenJDK. Python 2.6+ (including Python 3+).
Debian/Ubuntu users will have to install
sudo apt-get install g++ python-dev python3-dev
Should be easy as
python setup.py install
If it fails…¶
This happens mostly due to the setup not being able to find your
JAVA_HOME. In case this happens, please do two things:
You can continue the installation by finding the
JAVA_HOMEon your own ( the place where the headers etc. are) and explicitly setting it for the installation:
JAVA\_HOME=/usr/lib/java/jdk1.6.0/ python setup.py install
Please create an Issue on github and post all the information you have.

- Java classes outside of a package (in the
<default>) cannot be imported.
- unable to access a field or method if it conflicts with a python keyword.
- Because of lack of JVM support, you cannot shutdown the JVM and then restart it.
- Some methods rely on the “current” class/caller. Since calls coming directly from python code do not have a current class, these methods do not work. The User Manual lists all the known methods like that.
- Mixing 64 bit Python with 32 bit Java and vice versa crashes on import jpype.
