[0:07] <jimbaker> peke, yeah, i've been thinking exactly along these lines
[0:08] <jimbaker> if we can make a jython.exe, windows functionality goes up a lot
[0:11] <jimbaker> peke, i assume on windows, there's really not something that looks like os.exec (and the underlying system call) - so we just would use a subprocess to manage
[0:36] <peke> jimbaker: sounds good. only issue with subprocess is that pid of jython.exe is not the same as pid of the actual java process. same issue already with jython.(bat|sh) so definitely not a blocker.
[0:37] <peke> is your plan to have jython.exe in 2.7? i'd love that and am willing to help. but i do hope that's not a blocker for beta 4.

[1:26] <jimbaker> peke, i think we are done with beta 4 at this point
[1:27] <jimbaker> fwierzbicki, now that stefan got his changes in for gc visibility, let's go ahead w/ another soft beta 4
[1:27] <jimbaker> and we can make it "hard" in a few days if no issues come up
[1:33] <jimbaker> peke, yes, i think we should have a jython.exe in 2.7.0. i guess the only way we can avoid the pid being different for windows is if we actually embed jython.jar in cpython, through jni. i believe that's how jpype does it. let's not do that
[2:21] <jimbaker> peke, what do you think of pyinstaller - it seems to be more current than py2exe, and has support for other targets (if we ever decide to support it)

[20:24] <peke> peke: haven't heard about pyinstaller before so cannot really comment. i don't really have experience from py2exe either, though.
[20:26] <jimbaker> peke, np. i think the interesting advantage of pyinstaller is that it's cross platform. but for rc1, we will just do a win exe
[20:27] <jimbaker> so we will bin/jython.py, which will be cross platform; and a bin/jython.exe
[20:28] <jimbaker> bin/jython will normally be a shell script, but it could be a compiled executable in the future, possibly as part of the installer
[20:29] <jimbaker> bin/jython.py would normally be executed by cpython. maybe in the future, we might even combine with nailgun like functionality

[21:10] <fwierzbicki> jimbaker: cool, I'll put one together tonight
[21:11] <fwierzbicki> that's re: soft beta4 :)
[21:47] <jimbaker> so i could see a number of added steps in the installer 1) installed a binary executable if possible (always done on windows); 2) run ensurepip
[21:47] <jimbaker> fwierzbicki, thanks!
