First, what do you mean by "consol application". Does that mean you output text to the System.out stream and read text from System.in and nothing else?
System.in.read() would block until the user types something and when he does, the call would return the key he typed, does that do what you wanted?

Dear master,


 I think its beter t use.


BufferedReader b=new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(System.in)));

b.read();

as I found problems when waiting for one more character.


Bye

I think, the default input stream will wait until carriage return anyway.

>> I think, the default input stream will wait until carriage return anyway.

standard DOS console buffers keyboard input and allows editing - that's why it won't return any char unil CR (it's not 'default input stream' :)

of course in.read will work for telnet app.
