how to add jython (python) to JIRA Script Runner

Does anyone have a how-to for getting jython up ad running in JIRA Script Runner? I see the jython radio button in the Script Console, but I can not even get "print 'Hello World!'" to return a value. Also, where does one get the import-able packages for the JIRA API from?

I am new to JIRA but pretty well versed in python.

Thanks for any help.

I recommend using for python. I am going to drop support for everything but groovy in a future release.

FWIW, you will need to install the jar but other than that it should work fine.

Apparently the jython.jar that comes with RHEL 6 (Jython 2.2.1 on java1.7.0_45) does not work. I had to download the jar from the site.
