The go-ethereum client is commonly referred to as geth, which is the the command line interface for running a full ethereum node implemented in Go. By installing and running geth, you can take part in the ethereum frontier live network and:
- mine real ether
- transfer funds between addresses
- create contracts and send transactions
- explore block history
- and much much more

pyethapp is the python-based client implementing the Ethereum cryptoeconomic state machine. The python implementation aims to provide an easily hackable and extendable codebase.
pyethapp leverages two ethereum core components to implement the client:
- pyethereum – the core library, featuring the blockchain, the ethereum virtual machine, mining
- pydevp2p – the p2p networking library, featuring node discovery for and transport of multiple services over multiplexed and encrypted connections

Ethereum(J) is a pure-Java implementation of the Ethereum protocol. It is provided as a library that can be embedded in any Java/Scala project and to provide full support for Ethereum protocol and sub-services. Ethereum(J) was first developed by Roman Mandeleil and is now sponsored by <ether.camp>.
Ethereum(J) supports CPU mining. It is currently implemented in pure Java and can be used in private and test networks. You may even mine on the live Ethereum network, even though it is not economically feasible.
