Have no idea of the purpose of this effort to be honest. To kill completely that Swing or what? It seems like Sun is not interested in Java UI at all. (And indeed, how to make money from it?) Example: my Java VM http://www.terrainformatica.com/org/j-smile/index.htm starts and runs typical UI times faster than anything coming in UI area from the Sun. And I am not doing anything spectacular there - direct interpretation of bytecodes using one dumb switch statement. Andrew Fedoniouk. http://terrainformatica.com

No. The reality is that there will be no "native GTK components" in Swing, it's simply that Swing is now honoring the currently selected GTK theme. Ciao
