This changelog only contains changes from the first pypi release (0.5.4.3) onwards.
Next version - unreleased
- Corrected segfault when converting null elements while accessing a slice from a Java object array.
0.7.0 - 2019 - Doc strings are generated for classes and methods.
Complete rewrite of the core module code to deal unattached threads, improved hardening, and member management. Massive number of internal bugs were identified during the rewrite and corrected. See the JPype 0.7 Core ChangeLog for details of all changes.
- Java strings conversion behavior has changed. The previous behavior was
switchable, but only the default convert to Python was working.
Converting to automatically lead to problems in which is was impossible
to work with classes like StringBuilder in Java. To convert a Java
str(). Therefore, string conversion is currently selected by a switch at the start of the JVM. The default shall be False starting in JPype 0.8. New code is encouraged to use the future default of False. For the transition period the default will be True with a warning if not policy was selected to encourage developers to pick the string conversion policy that best applies to their application.
- Java exceptions are now derived from Python exception. The old wrapper
types have been removed. Catch the exception with the actual Java
exception type rather than
- Undocumented exceptions issued from within JPype have been mapped to the
corresponding Python exception types such as
ValueErrorappropriately. Code catching exceptions from previous versions should be checked to make sure all exception paths are being handled.
- Undocumented property import of Java bean pattern get/set accessors was
removed as the default. It is available with
import jpype.beans, but its use is discouraged.
- Java strings conversion behavior has changed. The previous behavior was switchable, but only the default convert to Python was working. Converting to automatically lead to problems in which is was impossible to work with classes like StringBuilder in Java. To convert a Java string use
- JPype factory methods now act as base classes for dynamic class trees.
- Static fields and methods are now available in object instances.
- Inner classes are now imported with the parent class.
jpype.importsworks with Python 2.7.
- Proxies and customizers now use decorators rather than
exposing internal classes. Existing
JProxycode still works.
- Decorator style proxies use
@JOverloadto create proxies from regular classes.
- Decorator style customizers use
jpype.typeswas introduced containing only the Java type wrappers. Use
from jpype.types import *to pull in this subset of JPype.
synchronizedusing the Python
withstatement now works for locking of Java objects.
Previous bug in initialization of arrays from list has been corrected.
Added extra verbiage to the to the raised exception when an overloaded method could not be matched. It now prints a list of all possible method signatures.
The following is now DEPRECATED
jpype.reflect.*- All class information is available with
JExceptionfrom string now issues a warning.
The followind is now REMOVED
- Python thread option for
JPypeReferenceQueue. References are always handled with with the Java cleanup routine. The undocumented
setUsePythonThreadForDaemon()has been removed.
- Undocumented switch to change strings from automatic to manual conversion has been removed.
- Artifical base classes
JavaObjecthave been removed.
- Undocumented old style customizers have been removed.
- Many internal jpype symbols have been removed from the namespace to prevent leakage of symbols on imports.
- Python thread option for
promoted `–install-option` to a `–global-option` as it applies to the build as well as install.
Added `–enable-tracing` to setup.py to allow for compiling with tracing for debugging.
Ant is required to build jpype from source, use
--ant=with setup.py to direct to a specific ant.
0.6.3 - 2018-04-03
Java reference counting has been converted to use JNI PushLocalFrame/PopLocalFrame. Several resource leaks were removed.
java.lang.Class<>.forName()will now return the java.lang.Class. Work arounds for requiring the class loader are no longer needed. Customizers now support customization of static members.
java.lang.Object().getClass()on Java objects returns a java.lang.Class rather than the Python class
java.lang.Object().__class__on Java objects returns the python class as do all python objects
java.lang.Object.class_maps to the java statement
java.lang.Object.classand returns the
- java.lang.Class supports reflection methods
- private fields and methods can be accessed via reflection
- annotations are avaiable via reflection
Java objects and arrays will not accept setattr unless the attribute corresponds to a java method or field whith the exception of private attributes that begin with underscore.
Added support for automatic conversion of boxed types.
- Boxed types automatically convert to python primitives.
- Boxed types automatically convert to java primitives when resolving functions.
- Functions taking boxed or primitives still resolve based on closest match.
Python integer primitives will implicitly match java float and double as per Java specification.
Added support for try with resources for
java.lang.Closeable. Use python “with MyJavaResource() as resource:” statement to automatically close a resource at the end of a block.
0.6.2 - 2017-01-13
- Fix JVM location for OSX.
- Fix a method overload bug.
- Add support for synthetic methods

0.5.7 - 2014-10-29
- No JDK/JRE is required to build anymore due to provided jni.h. To override this, one needs to set a JAVA_HOME pointing to a JDK during setup.
- Better support for various platforms and compilers (MinGW, Cygwin, Windows)
0.5.6 - 2014-09-27
- Note: In this release we returned to the three point number versioning scheme.
- Fix #63: ‘property’ object has no attribute ‘isBeanMutator’
- Fix #70: python setup.py develop does now work as expected
- Fix #79, Fix #85: missing declaration of ‘uint’
- Fix #80: opt out NumPy code dependency by ‘–disable-numpy’ parameter to setup. To opt out with pip append –install-option=”–disable-numpy”.
- Use JVMFinder method of @tcalmant to locate a Java runtime
0.5.5.4 - 2014-08-12
- Fix: compile issue, if numpy is not available (NPY_BOOL n/a). Closes #77
0.5.5.3 - 2014-08-11
- Optional support for NumPy arrays in handling of Java arrays. Both set and get slice operators are supported. Speed improvement of factor 10 for setting and factor 6 for getting. The returned arrays are typed with the matching NumPy type.
- Fix: add missing wrapper type ‘JShort’
- Fix: Conversion check for unsigned types did not work in array setters (tautological compare)
0.5.5.2 - 2014-04-29
- Fix: array setter memory leak (ISSUE: #64)
0.5.5.1 - 2014-04-11

- Fast sliced access for primitive datatype arrays (factor of 10)
- Use setter for Java bean property assignment even if not having a getter by @baztian
- Fix public methods not being accessible if a Java bean property with the same name exists by @baztian (Warning: In rare cases this change is incompatibile to previous releases. If you are accessing a bean property without using the get/set method and the bean has a public method with the property’s name you have to change the code to use the get/set methods.)
