Can anybody tell me what is the function equivalent to setEchoChar() for JTextField.
Basic idea is to set password character in JTextField.
Thanx
Arun

This is begging the question, but are you sure you have to implement user authentication? My instructions specifically say no need for user authentication.

I agree with Douglas. However, the answer to your question is: use a JPasswordField instead: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.3/docs/api/javax/swing/JPasswordField.html
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
