I've looked over the sources briefly, and they have implemented native 
threading over win32, winCE and winnt APIs. The AWT is still X based, 

On the other hand, kaffe.org kaffe comes with a Qt based AWT, which 
works with Qt2, and so it could work with the free Qt2 version for 
Windows, saving you from having to tell your users to download an X 
implementation. But the Qt-AWT implementation is not as well tested as 
the X11 one, so it may not be as stable. I'm rarely working with AWT 
myself, so I can't tell.

http://www.rainer-keuchel.de/wince/kaffe.html also includes Win32/WinNT 
tarballs with classfiles, which I assume is a version of kaffe built for 
Win32 or WinNT, so you may not need a WinCE machine to try it out.

In order to merge this kind of stuff in, we need developers interested 
in kaffe on windows. So if your customer is willing to work with you and 
Rainer (author of the KaffeCE port) to get the code merged in, that 
would be great. You can get in touch with Rainer on the wince-developer 
mailing list http://groups.yahoo.com/group/wince-devel/
