 # Jython WSGI applications run inside a Java/J2EE servlet container, e.g. "Apache Tomcat":http://tomcat.apache.org/
12 1 Alan Kennedy
 # Incoming requests are handled by the servlet container
13 1 Alan Kennedy
 # The container is configured to route requests to the modjy servlet
14 1 Alan Kennedy
 # The modjy servlet creates an embedded jython interpreter inside the servlet container, and loads a configured jython web application, e.g. "Django":http://www.djangoproject.com/, ??the web framework for perfectionists with deadlines??.
15 1 Alan Kennedy
 # The modjy servlet delegates the requests to the configured WSGI application or framework.
16 1 Alan Kennedy
 # The WSGI response is routed back to the client through the servlet container.
