KParts are individual components of the framework for the K desktop environment(KDE).

KParts are based on the concepts of Microsoft's Object Linking and Embedding. Konsole is available as a KPart and is used in applications like Konqueror and Kate.

Good examples about how KParts can be used are Konqueror, which (among other things) uses the KWord part to display documents, KMPlayer part to play multimedia, and Kontact, which embeds kdepim applications under one roof.
