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.

Of course, someone could point out some super-major-killer-feature of Jambi that I've left out that makes it all worthwhile in the end ...

Well, Designer is pretty freaking sweet. That one's pretty huge. It's also pretty awesome that you will (in the future) be able to make Java applications that blend in with KDE themes. So that may make it popular in the open-source world, at least.
