The Orekit Python Wrapper
The Orekit python wrapper enables to use Orekit within a normal Python environment. This is done by creating a wrapper around the java library using the JCC tool that provides a gateway between the java engine and python. The wrapped orekit will be t a large extent behave like a python module, with some caveats due to difference in architecture between Java and Python.
Using Orekit in python provides access to a large number of python libraries and an interactive environment, similar to tools like matlab and mathematica.
The Orekit wrapper was created by SSC and provided to the orekit project in May 2014.
