How do I release open source and should I?

Hi all,
I have made a small batch file renaming utility in JAVA that is tested for and working on mac os and windows. I was thinking of releasing it open source but I dont know if this is the best way to get it out there. Its GUI has been done completely in net-beans GUI builder so it has a big section of generated code and I'm not sure how open-source coders look on this... Would it be better to release it as free software in-staid?

Also where do I go to release open source? Is source forge the best place?
