Currently, Swing has a machinery to deal with GTK library in the following file (but not restricted by):
AWT may pick those functionality to deal with GTK API in a particular way:
1) to read GTK properties to get closer to GNOME (mouse timings is one of them)
2) to invoke GTK functions supporting desktop integration with mail agent, browser, etc.
