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.

Do what everyone else does, and did many years ago - use something else that makes deployment easier and we're you're not using unstable components. C'est la vie.

Uhm ... what exactly are you complaining about? Having to bundle an additional .so or .dll is a trivial task. I'd like to know what this amazing "something else" is? For any non-trivial task, you will be deploying more than one file.

To solve this problem, we came up with installers many years ago. Unless you're referring to static linking?
