you are probably running your program in an IDE. try running your program in commandline and you will definitely get an instance of Console. for more information refer javadocs for Console class at http://docs.oracle.com/javase/6/docs/api/java/io/Console.html

In extension to what gurpeet said. IDE's generally uses javaw.exe (which doesnt have a console associated) and not java.exe( which have a associated console)
