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.

Oh. And since I know you will want a citation for that claim that Swing is now the dominant GUI toolkit, here it is.

a 2005 Evans Data Corporation report found that 47% of companies doing desktop application development were using Swing. That was an increase of just 27% from a year ago, and a surge in popularity that caused it to pass even Microsoft's latest offerings for GUI toolkit design.
