I used Jide library for pivot tables. The results were impressive.

I was able to find out the developer documentation and could quickly come up with a prototype.

Although the documentation had grammatical mistakes, it was pretty straight forward and well organized.

Sadly, I could not find much on the forums for whatever issues I ran into during development.

Happy customer here. They have very good support, response within a work day and typically a patch or minor feature requests within a week to a month depending how close to a release they are. You can get more options if you pay more though of course :).

Only note is that the look & feel of their com.jidesoft.combobox.AbstractComboBox derived classes is not good on GTK, Nimbus or look pixel perfect with other third party look and feels. Those table/tree/etc combo boxes are really useful though in my opinion.
