Hi.
Is it possible to embed a font(not installed on user's OS )in our package and use it to display characters in app?
( for example in a JTextField ? )

I was wondering the same thing myself.
However, I know some fonts are Windows only fonts ... only windows can read them ... so I dont think those would be able to be embeded (well .. they could be embeded, but I dont think they would work).
Good Question
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
