Java worse than Visual Basic

Before anyone flame me I will say that I have migrated my main development platform from Visual Basic to Java. In many ways Java is much more powerful than Visual Basic. However there is one aspect of Java that is worse than Visual Basic. What? There are only small number of components available in Java. This really puzzle and annoys me. In Visual Basic there are enormous number of ActiveX that you can use to enhance the looks and capability of your application. However in Java the number of components available is very small. They exists, however it seems the number of vendor and components is not as many as in Visual Basic world. Why this happens? Please share your thoughts on this issues.
