Slow socket open

When using the python socket lib, it is slow to open the socket -4.5 seconds. If I try in just a terminal in python and not jython on Windows, it takes about 1 sec. Does anyone else have this issue and does anyone have a workaround beyond just trying to keep the socket open forever?

One workaround would be to use the Java socket API instead.

It requires some care handling scripting object lifetimes, but this is what I do. And I use the Java libraries as Kevin suggests, not python.

You are right! … there is something very wrong with jython’s version of the python socket lib.

~4.5 seconds to connect using python’s socket
~0.003 seconds to connect using

I will use java, but that is kinda a bummer that python is so inefficient here.
