I have used Jython and Swing for a bioinformatics GUI that's got about
6,000 lines of code & I'm quite happy with my choice.  Installation is
dead easy -- it's down to a single .jar file -- and most people have a
compatible JVM installed.

You can check out the program at http://family.caltech.edu/.

n.b. 6000 lines of Jython code =~ 10,000 lines of Java code.
