Let me post a screenshot of what I've achieved so far:

This is a small AWT Demo program, running on Jamaica with the OpenJDK
libraries plus the GTK AWT peers from GNU Classpath. Notice the nice
GTKish AWT widgets. Not everything is working yet (notice the exception
in the background), but it's already quite usable. The only change on
OpenJDK that was needed so far is the KeyboardFocusManager patch that I
posted separately.

Cheers, Roman
