I'm planning to have a native exe for my next game. So far as I understand it there's no serious alternative to Excelsior JET, right? There are two editions available, Standard and Professional, and I'm wondering if Standard edition would be good enough for a game (which would help my tight indie budget a lot Smiley ).

I'm using lwjgl, no AWT/Swing whatsoever. Any experiences?

Both are fine.
Standard is much easier to use but you have to ship megs and megs of DLLs along with the game. Maybe that's not such a big issue any more. If you don't use AWT or Swing it can be fairly small.
Pro has a global optimiser and squeezes true C++ performance out of the JVM but it's incredibly fiddly to get it right.

I use j4exe but it has stupid bugs when you try to use some classes like Random and Scanner.

Do you mean exe4j? It's cheap but what I understand it does not compile into native code, it just provides an exe
