The simplest way remains:
void append(String text)
{
     textfield.setText(textfield.getText() + text);
}

You might design a strategy to add newlines as <BR>  (HTML code).
;JOOP!

It might be better to use a different component, such as JTextArea for larger amounts of text

I think it's better to work on the Document.
This way you don't need to set the entire text anytime you want to append something.
You just append what you need to append to the Document.
It should be much more efficient.

    JTextField myJTextField = new JTextField();
    Document myDocument = myJTextField.getDocument();

    myDocument.insertString(myDocument.getEndPosition().getOffset()-1, "hello ", null);
    myDocument.insertString(myDocument.getEndPosition().getOffset()-1, "cruel ", null);
    myDocument.insertString(myDocument.getEndPosition().getOffset()-1, "world ", null);

    System.out.println(myJTextField.getText());
