Could some resources be listed in relation to the creation and management of simplistic, efficient 2D game levels, that are available for use with Java?

Have a look at Tiled or OGMO Editor. These editors allow you to create your levels and can also write the level-data to XML. Parsing the XML data in Java should be rather simple. Alternatively you could have a look at the AndEngine which comes with a parser for the TMX format (TMX is an XML format written by Tiled).

Processing is its own langauge, meant for image manipulation; how does this relate to the question at all? – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Jul 7 '11 at 6:16
with "use" i mean add the jars of this frameworks (it is not a properly a language..) and use its easy library for xml and 2d graphic. probabilly i did not understand the question – nkint Jul 11 '11 at 0:24
