If memory serves me, you can filter for both games and java based programs on sourceforge.

"Java 2D Graphics" from O''Reilly press, although not a game programming book, still has lots of good graphic information that game programmers will find useful.

javagaming.org has a few examples up. One thing I''d recommend checking out is a pacman game that someone posted on the newbies forum. Look for the thread with over 100 posts. That game is essentially the end product of a lot of people on the forums pitching in ideas, and it has lots of good stuff in it. As far as I know, it represents the best known way to get smooth graphics in software with java (damn garbage collector!) It runs very smoothly on my machine, and in turn my game ended up running very smoothly because of it.
