Hi all,

  I am glad to inform the news that I successfully made SwingWT running
on KaffeVM without modifying any Kaffe's code. Be sure to use cvs
version of both KaffeVM and SwingWT (I worked on 0.81 PRE-260304), and
modify the build.xml to use jike as java compiler to ensure correct
bytecodes. After build process completed, write a script like this:

jserv at venux:~/expr/SwingWT$ cat run-demo 
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=`pwd`/lib/linux_gtk2:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

/opt/bin/kaffe -cp lib/linux_gtk2/swt-mozilla.jar:lib/linux_gtk2/swt.jar:lib/linux_gtk2/swt-pi.jar:lib/swingwt.jar \
        -Xss 128M \

Notice that Kaffe must run with the runtime flag -Xss 128M to ensure enough 
JNI stack for running SwingWT. I took some screenshots:
