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.

The way Trolltech business is, make them perpetual second alternative.

You're probably right. I suppose that Trolltech thought about this and figured they would rather be the second alternative and sell their product to be quite profitable, than be the standard (which they could be if Qt was BSD licensed or some such) and make less money (and thus have less money to put into development of the toolkit).
