Hello all,

  I just committed the JAWT AWT Native Interface)[1] support in cvs
repository[2]. The work is based on GCJ's implementation brought by
Thomas Fitzsimmons.[3]

  #ProgX provides a good jawt example to express how to let a normal
Qt3 application and a Java application talk to each other, and you
can see the material and example (QOJ - Qt on Java)[4]. Luckily, Kaffe 
could successfully drive it work with jawt implementation, and the
screenshot is like:


  You can find out the top-left window is a Java AWT/Swing gtk-peer
driven by Kaffe, and the bottom window is just a Qt3/X11 application.
They communicate with each other via jawt. :-)

  Later, I would attempt to test JOGL[5] and other Java applications
which need JAWT, such Eclipse SWT. It is really a nice beginning.
