Well I am using Eclipse 3.6.2, however, I tried it in command prompt, and, it seems like the for ... each loop is not working well, since, I only get the last character of the password returned:

Jon, this also applies for Eclipse, and probably every other IDE. That's why you get a NullPointerException - System.console() returns null.
You get the NullPointerException before the "Enter a password" prompt because the NullPointerException is sent to System.err and the prompt to System.out, and Eclipse is quite bad at interweaving these two as you expect.

That's too bad, I thought Eclipse and Netbeans were fairly reliable.
They are reliable.
From the Console API:
If the virtual machine is started from an interactive command line without redirecting the standard input and output streams then its console will exist and
If this virtual machine has a console then it is represented by a unique instance of this class which can be obtained by invoking the System.console() method.
If no console device is available then an invocation of that method will return null.

I’ve looked at a lot of different solutions, and in my humble opinion Aspose is the way to go. Here’s the link: http://aspose.com
