Check out jMonkey or Ardor3D

Ardor 3D is a branch of the jMonkey engine started by the original founders. It isn't as feature complete at jMonkey, but does things in a slighty cleaner and better way.

Real desktop application games have been created with jMonkey, so it should help you along.

Try Slick2D; I just started game programming and ran across this library; it is built on top of LWJGL, so there are native libraries involved, but it takes care of all the boiler plate stuff for you.

There are a few tutorials to get you started in the wiki and the forums are active.
