Following code leads to the crash:
 - result can be seen after the code section

from javax.swing import JFrame
from javax.swing import JMenuBar

class Framework(JFrame):
    def __init__(self):
        self.menuBar = JMenuBar()

        self.setLocation(50, 50)
        self.setSize(400, 400)
        self.setTitle("A title...")

if __name__ == "__main__":
    framework = Framework()

>C:\Jython2.5.1\jython.bat -u ""
Traceback (most recent call last):

JFrame inherits from class java.awt.Frame a pair of setter and getter called setMenuBar and getMenuBar respectively. These methods return or take java.awt.Menubar. 

So, when you call

self.menuBar = JMenuBar()

jython resolved it to a call of setMenuBar and hence a conversion exception.

Rename menuBar to something else will avoid the exception

The same did not happen in Java so I have had no idea.

Is this issue resolved to the OP's satisfaction?

If so, I will close it.

Thanks to Anthony for the solution.
