      Description



      Name: tb29552 Date: 01/21/98


      When getting input from the console through the java.io classes there is no possibility
      to hide the input characters like in the java.awt.TextField component with setEchoChar.

      This is currently the only reason that prevents our project from beeing "Pure Java"
      because for the console applications we need a native library to hide the input of
      the database password.
