Don't have one, but don't use Java for game development, if you can help it.

What with Minecraft and Runescape being a written in Java, people seem to think Java is a great language for game development, which is not the case. Java is great for portable application development, but, unless you use GCJ (Only for *nix, IIRC), it runs very slowly when tasked with a lot of calculations.

IIRC, Java's OpenGL library is just a wrapper for the C library. You'd be better off just using the C library directly.

Portable as in run anywhere, not as in mobile phones.
touchè. Cross platform would have been a better term though.
