Jython with Jira - the basics

I'm new to the Jira Script Console. I would have thought that:

def test():

       print 'this is a test'

       return 'testing'



would do the obvious, but I'm getting a return value of 'no return value' and either the print statement isn't working or I'm looking for it in the wrong place (the Chrome console).

A good link to docs may be sufficient if this is a dumb question--I can't seem to find relevant information.

No, "print" would go to stdout, normally redirected to the file catalina.out.

I've been thinking about dropping support for all languages other than groovy, the restrictions are not worth it for the number of non-groovy users.

I understand, but maybe there'd be more non-groovy users if there were some sort of docs for us?
