Hello guys,
I am starting a project that consists of a 2D GAME. It will follow the style of super mario and sonic...
Does anybody know about a good library for displaying the 2D graphics in a fast manner? Has anyone ever programmed a game in java?

Go to this link for a few links to tutorials on the internet, Java isn't really suitable for a fully blown 3D games engine when compared to C++ or similar, but you can achieve some amazing results that really push the limits of the language.

You might want to consider using a class library such as Magician OpenGL (www.aracana.co.uk I think) to improve rendering performance.
