you may want to add them into a JWindow and show/hide as popup!

Moreover doing it this way .. I guess I will have to create a separate new JWindow everytime I want a popup with text field. or else I will have to add/remove JTextFields everytime ??

you can just re-use them, if creating everytime is expensive, just make visible true/false!

But this is really strange that there is no in built pop up with text field. As it is used pretty frequently.

Moreover I want to add functionalities like .. popping it up next to pressed button.

And depending on which button is pressed I want to save text entered at different places. All this will require additional  code. :(

yes, it needs lots of code, you need to get the click location and place the window in that location!
