When it comes to JX, the desktop integration is already there, I think, if
by "desktop integration" you mean "being able to interact with other stuff
on the desktop" and not "look like other stuff on the desktop". In fact,
both GTK+ and Qt use the XDND protocol for drag'n'drop and similar
operations, and this is the same protocol that JX uses; XDND has been in
fact developed by the author of JX, John Lindal, see:

JX is also an "application building environment", not simply a graphical
toolkit, see

Ok, I like JX, that's clear :)
All the best,
