If you don't already know java, you need to start with just basic java. Games won't come for a couple months. Unless you already know a programming language, in which case google around for Java3D.

The concepts and algorithms for a Java game are the same as for a C++/openGL game. I don't believe there are many tutorials about Java games specifically, but you can certainly find plenty of general game algorithms and just implement them in java.

The best bet then is java.sun.com or to just read ahead in your textbook. honestly, games (or graphics of any kind) require knowledge of almost 100% of a language as they are incrediably complicated.

However, you could likely start working on a text based RPG with what you already know. You could also poke around the Java3D site and see if any of the docs there make sense (if not, you just need to learn more until they do make sense). You could always download their stuff and play with it and see if it makes sense.
