This is something we wanted to add to JGF (JBanes has already quoted the URL : http://grexengine.com/sections/externalgames/ ) but very very few java games developers could be bothered / were willing to include their details.
You seem to be having better luck with this! It would be great if we could put your data on JGF - partly because everything is auto-generated from XML source, and so each person who submits their game project(s) to JGF would have them auto linked to/from the author page.
(FYI: anyone can submit a java game to JGF; only requirements are that it's free / free demo, is playable, cross platform, and works - doesn't need to be complete, just as long as it's playable)

I am trying to work on my game as a sort of challenge to see what I can do since I have only my senior year of high school to go before going to college. That leaves me with about 1 year before I will hopefully attend Full Sail and become an official game programmer. Life will be even more fun after that cause I'll get the best of both worlds programming and video games. I cant wait.
