Licensing kAWT provides many advantages, for hardware
manufacturers as well as for software developers:
- Building applications based on kAWT saves development
ressources. Normally, JAVA developers are already used to AWT
programming, and kAWT provides a higher level interface than the
- Licensing kAWT is significantly cheaper than implementing
an AWT subset from scratch, even as basis for differing
implemetations If we would have known the effort

- A kAWT port to different hardware can be performed quickly,
providing fast time to market.
