However I am experiencing some strange problems when using JPype. When I try

In org.neo4j.impl.traversal package we have:

public interface Traverser extends org.neo4j.api.core.Traverser

abstract class AbstractTraverser implements Traverser,Iterator<Node>

class BreadthFirstTraverser extends AbstractTraverser

class DepthFirstTraverser extends AbstractTraverser

The first interface (Traverser that extends api.core.Traverser) is just old
stuff that hasn't been removed yet since the recent update of the Neo API.
Implementation of Iterator interface lies in AbstractTraverser, the two
concrete classes (that gets instantiated depending on
BREADTH_FIRST/DEPTH_FIRST traverser) don't override any of the Iterator
interface methods.

I will submit a link to the source code of my project on this list as soon

Great, as you probably already know we are waiting for the GPLv3 to be
released before we release the source for Neo. If my description above
wasn't enough I can send you the source code under a proprietary license.
