      Description

      [12/15/96 xykong]

      TextField is for graphics mode only, there is no way to enter a password
      with text only mode, such as working on a dumb terminal.

      I assume that Java is potentially a programming language for everything, this
      feature is defintely needed in basic JAVA API.

      [6/6/96 xykong]

      I was trying to use Java on an internet application, in the application getting user's
      password is needed, but I could not find any methods in JAVA's API to do it.
