JuK doesn't have any specific integration with Pulseaudio, instead
preferring to use Phonon. However my understanding is that the Phonon
library (KDE's multimedia software framework) does have a good
Pulseaudio integration.

I don't actually use Pulseaudio myself so I can't attest to how to make
it work directly. It might be required to install a specific Pulseaudio
support library for Phonon on your distribution, or maybe someone else
on the list knows how to make Phonon apps work nicely with Pulseaudio.
