>From a lot of your posts, it seems like you're running into the same sort
of problem that some of my colleagues ran into with Jython. The fact is
that Jython is just not well supported by the Python community, and it's
going to keep getting worse as Python 2.X EOL deadline in 2020 (IIRC) gets
closer. As a Python developer, I think you might find it a lot easier to
switch to Python 3 for your code and turn these scripts into Flask-driven
microservices that are called by NiFi.
