Hi Guyren, 

For spatial analysis in jython I would check out Justin Deolive's
GeoScript jython project.


It uses JTS and GeoTools. If you are looking to use jruby and geo, you
could always try using JTS in jruby. It should work fine. 

Hope this helps.

This will let me just get the thing done, rather than have to spend my time learning TurboGears first (it appears to be a fine framework, but the community and documentation are not nearly as robust as those for Rails).
