What is the Java Multi-threaded GUI Toolkit?

The Java Multi-threaded GUI Toolkit (formerly called Java/GTK) is a truely multi-threaded GUI Toolkit for Java that offers a different approach to event handling and using graphical user interface componentens from the Java programming language. Part of the prototype implementation of the toolkit uses the GTK+ toolkit (the toolkit behind GIMP and the Gnome project). A more detailed description can be found in the README file.

Code and example programs of the current public release of the Multi-threaded GUI Toolkit for Java are available for download:

To get an idea what this is all about, you can look at my Ph.D. thesis on this subject, which also contains the theoretical background for the work. Some older slides (in German) from a presentation at the University of Osnabrück in May 2000 are also still available.

A very old (and outdated) version for GTK-1.2 is still available, though probably only interesting for historical reasons:
