I am the author of a Java program that is free to use

Is it ok for me to publish it as home project on OBS, or is it against OBS
rules ?

The licensing terms need to be OSI compliant, irrespective of the form
of the program.

Right, the only exception is for approved packages which have been
included in the openSUSE NonFree repositories.

You could theoretical apply there for inclusion, but afaik the distribution
people are not very keen to include more...
