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.

Member since:

In most cases, Windows users care about native look and feel

You're kidding. Windows apps are terribly inconsistent. Compare MS Office to Nero to Photoshop to MSN Messenger to Internet Explorer to any antivirus app, to any firewall app etc etc etc. Apparently Windows users don't care about consistency so much, and proprietary apps love differentiating their apps visually from others. I mean, just look at this OSNews story on the newly bundled photoshop apps. The UI is completely foreign, once again:

Mac users are more discerning, but even there there are a few different styles that are only being consolidated now with 10.5.
