!! Source cloned and compiled form trunk (

/opt/jython-2.7a1+/bin/jython -c 'import sys; print sys.path'
['', '/opt/jython-2.7a1+/Lib', '/opt/jython-2.7a1+/__classpath__', '/opt/jython-2.7a1+/__pyclasspath__']

!! The problem is located at Lib/ line 68, python_implementation is a function so this will always be False

_is_jython = _platform.python_implementation == "Jython"

!! fix

_is_jython = _platform.python_implementation() == "Jython"

How embarrassing, thanks for catching this!

Fixed in default branch.

I'd actually try to avoid the platform import entirely as it'll add (albeit slightly, but I think every import 'counts' for Jython) to startup time

pjenvey: sure - I've always hated sys.platform.startswith("java") -- but startup time is more important. Besides, it looks like 3.3 will have a nicer string to look up with the sys.implementation PEP so I'll go and make sure to kill the platform imports where I've put them in.

ok "import platform" calls removed in favor of the old sys.platform.startswith("java")
