When coding a Jython script to use class notation and import an existing class I get the following error:

C:\scripts>"C:/Program Files/IBM/WebSphere/AppServer/profiles/AppSrv01/bin/wsadmin.bat" -lang jython -f "C:/scripts/class_test.py"
WASX7209I: Connected to process "server1" on node myNode01 using SOAP connector;  The type of process is: UnManagedProcess

TypeError: call of non-function (module 'classJVMProperties')


After you’ve done “import X”, the name X refers to the namespace of the module X.py, not the class (or any other object) in that module. To access the class, use dot notation: For example: x = X.X()

The code I had used was as follows:


import classJVMProperties
myJVM = setJVMProperties()


import classJVMProperties
myJVM = classJVMProperties.setJVMProperties()
