Accessing a database and GUI Components

I've the following question:
Which technology would you use for a "medium size" application that consists
of a lot of tables, lists and forms for showing and editing customers, bills
and so on? The database is a Postgresql-DB and the application should be
implemented as a normal Swing-Client and not as Webservice.
- pure JDBC and self-developed/filled Swing-Components: Does anyone use this
in fact of the high effort?
- prepared components (Oracle JDeveloper, Borland JBuilder): Are these
components/tools compatible with the Postgresql-DB? How simply are they to
use (especially for complex tables/lists)?
- Java-Objects (via a persistency-layer) and standard Swing-Components:
Which layer should be used (JDO, Hibernate,...)? Can these objects be used
in Swing-Components easily (also especially for tabels)?
The development should be backed by tools which avoid manual programming and
configuration. And another goal of course is a rapid development.
Thanks for your replies and excuse me if my English is not so good because
i'm from Austria.
