JAWT is a standardized but optional API by which the JVM exposes its use of the platform GUI toolkit. In other words, you can use it to make platform-specific graphics calls into the windows that Java has put on the screen. It's used to implement the various Java/OpenGL APIs, for example. See here for the basic documentation.
