The Create Java DB Database (invoked from right clicking the Java DB node and Create Database..) does *not* hide the new password with asterisks.
So, if you type in 'password', you see 'password' and not '********'.
The dialog should let you enter it twice (hidden), if in case there is user error.
I agree with the reporter that we should use a password field instead of normal textfield for create database dialog.
Looks like a NetFIX participant can take on. Does Jiri Rechtacek agree?
I do agree. Please, fix it. Thank you
