Description Lukas Krejci 2012-07-16 16:42:01 EDT
Description of problem:

Python is a language with very large userbase. Given the JSR223 compatible implementation is available (jython), we should add support for running CLI scripts written in Python.

The support should be completely equivalent to the Javascript one. I.e. the objects with the same methods with the same semantics should be available both in Python and Javascript.
Comment 1 Lukas Krejci 2012-07-16 16:48:39 EDT
As of commit http://git.fedorahosted.org/git/?p=rhq/rhq.git;a=commitdiff;h=6e4d8cd596e81674ec3eacc625be9f3eb3d04f2a we have a nice Python support. 

The only problem with that is that it is not integrated into RHQ in any way - it has to be built and deployed manually.
Comment 2 Lukas Krejci 2012-07-16 16:50:32 EDT
Putting this ON_DEV so that we only QA it once Python support is somehow packaged into RHQ server and CLI.

This is tracked separately by bug 840662.
Comment 3 Heiko W. Rupp 2013-09-01 15:21:42 EDT
Bulk closing of BZs that have no target version set, but which are ON_QA for more than a year and thus are in production for a long time.
