Visix Vibe vs. stadard Java

I have standalone multiplatform application.
I used standard Java API 1.1 for the first version of this app. It was quite successful.
Now I am choosing development environment for the second version from two available choices: Visix Vibe or some IDE with support of JDK 1.1 (Symantec Visual Cafe for example).
Have you any experience with Visix Vibe? What can you say about it?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Visix's Vibe product is a pretty decent IDE, but I really
recommend the Visual Cafe Pro product.  It has support for
beans and drag and drop database support.  It's component
library is fairly impressive.  The only issue I have with
the Visual Cafe is that if you just want to write your
own applet from scratch, it's kind of a pain.  

VIBE's component library is not as good, and I don't have
the version with database support, but I've heard that the
dbAnywhere is simpler to use.
