    Well u can have a look at this.
    How to Use Password Fields (The Java™ Tutorials > Creating a GUI With JFC/Swing > Using Swing Components)

    The JPasswordField has a method which is setEchoChar(). As documentation states:

    Sets the echo character for this JPasswordField. ... Setting a value of 0 indicates that you wish to see the text as it is typed, similar to the behavior of a standard JTextField.

    You can then use just a JPasswordField and enable the echo character (eg. '*') just for the password.
