java console, simulating user input?

Good afternoon.

I was wondering if there is anyway to display a console prompt already
"filled in" with a default option, so the user only has to press enter, but
can modify the string at will.

This seems really difficult to do. Writing to is not a option
obviously. Writing to System.out is useless, since the user can't edit that.
The class offers no help or guidance apparently.

So, is it possible?
