Hi,

I am holding around 13+ years of experience in Java programming. And now planning to start with Python but a bit confused on  Python or Jython ?

Which one would more suited in terms of learning and complexity and especially in long run?

Jython is just an implementation of Python ported to Java. Not sured about which versions of Python ported or tool support.

Better stick to the original Python, good resources and good tool support.

I am thirding the recommendations as when I looked recently, neither Jython nor Iron Python had successfully made the leap to version 3 for production.

Python 3.6 is the oldest still supported level, I would ignore anything stuck before that.

When you get further, if you are doing Data-Science-kind of stuff you will be using Anaconda, or Numba, or other stuff that will focus your Python package choices.

For now, the standard Python (which is CPython, but just gets called Python in most places including Python.org) is your best bet, and forget that old versions before 3.6 even existed, there are a lot of new things that are different / nicer in modern Python, and the old ones are out of support now [mostly relevant if you find older tutorial material that was good at the time].
