Raw keyboard input for Java (?)

Can anyone give me pointers as to how I can get input to Java from a keyboard
- one character at a time with no echo, as they are typed?

The default System.in delivers characters a line at a time, and they are
echo'd to the screen as they are typed.

I recall that in the past I've done this sort of thing with C, using system
calls - i.e. system (Unix) specific. I'd really like to find a universal
technique, if that is possible.
