More details please.
What is ine time user enter debit or credit Does it mean the user can enter the amount only once?

JTextField#getText gives you the text inside that component. You can use it to perform your checks.

Mark,
Easy on the "sir". We are all informal here

One way to do it is using a DocumentListener.
You provide a custom document listener to both the text fields. Once you figure out that the user has entered some value in field 1, you can disable the field 2.

Thnx Mark,
this solution also in my mind but problem is that if any user enter credit data in debit field by mistake, and when he want to correct this the credit field is disable......................

Any solutions we check textFields values on change event or key pressed event.....

Well, if the user deletes all data in field1 then field2 will be enabled and data can be entered there.
