First start with the basics. Learn and be proficient with Java2D. Make a game with Java2D only. (By Java2D, if you don't know, I mean java.awt.geom, java.awt.image, Graphics, and Graphics2D.) Then once you feel confident with your skills, start diving into LWJGL, Slick2D, and jME, just to name a few excellent libraries for 2D and 3D game making.

If you starting out, i'd also recommend Slick2D. Out of all the external java gaming libraries, it probably has the best documentation, tutorials and community to get you going quickly.

When beginning 3D game making, try jPCT It is an excellent 3D library for beginners. I use it and I love it.
