Python/Jithon version associated to WLST

It's becoming a real issue to have to use such an old version of Python, 2.2, in WLST. There are lovely products like SQLAlchemy that we cannot use with such an old version.

I have opened an SR with Oracle, they say that it's a common request, they will provide an update in the future, and any version of Python other than the one shipped with WebLogic is unsupported.

Since we use WLST merely for configuration tasks, it's quite easy to check if it's doing the right thing: just check the configuration XML generated.

Anyway here we are not willing to hack the product and risk a legal suit. It's awkward to code in 2.2 when there is a 2.7 available, but such is life.
