Kaffe doesn't have it's own implementation of swing. If you need swing, you 
need to get the JFC kit for java 1.1 from Sun, and add that to your 
classpath. That should work, but might fail with applications relying on new 
features introduced with java 1.2/1.3.

Just taking rt.jar from jdk 1.3 will fail, since swing in 1.3 relies on a  
method in java.awt.EventQueue that was added in java 1.2.  Kaffe covers 
mostly 1.1 for now, so you can't rely on  java 1.2/1.3 features being 

Good luck,
