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.

Swing sucks in KDE. I will admit that. Their KDE support is awful unless you use a third party theme.

Load it up in GNOME though, and set the UIManager to use the system look and feel, and you won't be able to tell the difference between a native GNOME app and the Swing app (presuming you are using a relatively recent version of Java 6.)
