I wanted to know if there are any good Java Game Developing articles somewhere. I wouldn't really care about Java, but i want something that is cross-platform and can run on anyones computer.
I was looking for a good Java 2D Game engine aswell, but at first i'd like to learn more about Java game developing in general.

A good site for java game developers is javagaming.org. I don't know where you would find game development tutorials. Jgame and Slick are two 2d engines I know about. The guy who wrote the slick engine has some tutorials.

You don't need to use Java to be cross-platform.
You can quite happily write cross platform games in C++ although it will take a little bit of platform specific code for each (the vast majority of your code -- and work -- will remain the same though).
If you don't feel like writing the platform specific code, you could always use a prebuilt, cross-platform engine like Ogre3D or Unity3D.
