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.

Opera is not Qt based. They use Qt for menus only. The actual theme engine is their own.

Yes, menus, but more importantly, printing support. Printing support is hard to do, and they didn't want to reinvent the wheel. The rest of the UI is built on their custom in-house cross platform toolkit.
