I haven't done a thorough evaluation, but just feel more comfortable
with JGraph. My specific goal required me to make some changes to both,
and it was far easier to do that with JGraph. It may be that GEF is more
feature-rich, with better support for making a diagram editor. But for
my purposes, including making a GUI builder with my students, I think
JGraph was a wise choice. Note that JGraphpad, a generic diagram editor
based on JGraph, has many of the features that is part of GEF.

That's my experience, yes. JGraph is fairly well documentet, although
the development is a bit ahead of the docs. I'm working with JGraph's
primary author on the next version, and feel comfortable with the
project and its direction.
