From the phrasing of the question, you seem to already know how to print text to the console; however, if every looking for anything to start out you can check the Java Tutorials:
http://java.sun.com/docs/books/tutorial/.

For centering, you will have to that manually by putting in spaces before the text.  One method to keep this uniform is to create a replicate function that you can use to replicate same string like " " or "-" x number of times across console.  See this posting in the Java forums on an example:

I learn a lot more from the way you word your responses, instead of just clipping in some code - even though that would be easier for me! Keep up the good work ! Thanks :D

Figured if you are hear to learn, I will try my best to help that than give you code that you don't understand why it works. :) Sometimes that works, sometimes it doesn't.  Appreciate the feedback.  If I am ever answering your questions and try to implement code yourself and still have a specific question please feel free to post back.  I will do my best to answer completely.

Happy coding.

Regards,
Kevin
