I have installed jython 2.2.1 on Windows XP and it works fine. I've
tried to install on Z/OS 1.8 and it appears to install correctly
(message Congratulations! You successfully installed Jython 2.2.1 to
directory /u/Y057AHE/jython/install. received. However when I try to run
the graph example, it just hangs. I see 

MVS2 # jythonc --package pygraph

Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

then nothing else. Only thing I can do is cancel my session. 

Is there a known problem on Z/OS or have I done something wrong?

I see that you are trying to use jythonc -- have you tried using just
jython on z/os?  I'm afraid I don't know if we have any z/os machines to
test with.

Do we plan to address this issue? Will there be a maintenance release of jython 2.2?

Should we request the user to try jython 2.5 instead?

This issue seems to have made far more progress with jython on z/OS

dysonbags: have you tried this with Jython 2.5.2? There isn't much chance for it to get fixed in 2.2.

I think since there is no reply for four years from the poster that we can safely close this one.
