Qt Jambi ships as a single Java library, or JAR (Java Archive) file, plus a handful of tools, including an interface layout and design tool, and an Eclipse plug-in. Trolltech uses its vaunted Qt C++ library as the GUI engine and puts Java wrappers around it. This approach uses the JNI (Java Native Interface) to call the necessary functions from Java. More here.

Regarding GUI fidelity, Qt looks native both on OSX and windows (linux being of course a different topic since there is no such thing as a default toolkit)

Actually there are plenty of apps that are Qt based (for instance Opera, Skype) that many people don't even know are Qt apps.


Actually, Opera looks very obviously un-Mac-like and Skype... Skype on OS X looks and behaves perfectly as if it were a native app, even including Core Image transitions! Of course... that is because for Mac OS X they rewrote the GUI code using Cocoa ;)

edit: spelling ;)
