jython-standalone-2.7.0 jar execution is causing issue in our project. This lib is being used in our project SCCM i.e java project to execute some of the python scripts. The script execution is failing frequently giving error message "illegal state exception". Not able to understand what can be issue. I think that error is being thrown from jython code.  The old version of this jar was not causing issue. After upgrading to jython 2.7 standalone jar, this issue is being observed very frequently.

Neha, please provide more information.
- How does the project use/embedd/access jython-standalone?
- the full stacktrace
- if possible: Code to reproduce the issue
- What platform are you on?

That said, please check out Jython 2.7.1 and report if the issue still occurs.

- How does the project use/embedd/access jython-standalone?
We have created a few scripts which use the python scripts from the jython-2.7.0-standalone.jar
We are using the python utilities httplib, xml.etree.ElementTree as xmltree, urlparse, pprint, types, getopt, re, shutil.
These are utilized for reading the data using the OSLC API.

- if possible: Code to reproduce the issue
Below is one of the code snippet, however we cannot share the complete code-
def _action(self, action, silent, method='GET'):
                (conn, headers) = restConnection()
                url = '/sccmOslc/dataSources/' + self.type + '/' + self.identifier + '?oslc_ua.action=' + action
                headers['Content-Type'] = 'application/xml'
                conn.request(method, url, headers=headers)
                response = conn.getresponse()
                if response.status == 200:
                        return True
                if silent == False:
                        tree = xmltree.fromstring(
                        print str(response.status) + ': ' + tree[0].find('{}title').text
                        print tree[0].find('{}description').text
                return False

- What platform are you on?
We are using the RHEL 7.2 and 7.3 systems.
We would also like to point out the following-
- This issue is not seen in the jython-2.5.3-standalone.jar, but is seen very frequently in the jython 2.7.0 jar.
- We saw the below post on StackOverflow, but did not find the jython 2.7.1 version of the jar on
Could you share the download link for the same?

This seems to be ssl related, so adding Jim to nosy...
What JVM are you using? The path contains "ibm" folders, so I guess it is IBM J9...?
Find some download links for Jython 2.7.1 here:

Netty and various third party libs were updated, so this could definitely make a difference.

Unfortunately I self cannot help on this issue right now. Just wanted to make sure that all necessary information is logged here for further steps.

we use IBM java SDK

This issue is very critical as it is breaking  some of our project functionality.
