It's not the actual string that has the color property. It's the container in which you present the string. Where are you going to show it?

That depends on the context. This is one way

JEditorPane ep = new JEditorPane();
ep.setContentType("text/html");
ep.setEditable(false);
ep.setText("<font color=\"red\">" + s + "</font>");

Or add a JLabel to the JPanel:

JLabel label = new JLabel();
JPanel.add(label);
label.setForeground(Color.RED);
label.setText(theString);
