I am developing a console application that request a password, but I don't wanna the password to be shown in the console when the user enters it.

The source code is something like that:
System.out.print("Password: ");
BufferedReader in = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in)) ;
String password = "";
try
{
       password  = in.readLine() ;
}
catch (IOException e) {}
return s ;
