It depends on the robustness that you will need for encryption/decryption. If your system is behind a firewall and you wish to encrypt the password just so fellow developers do not know it, try something very basic like word/letter substitution or a cipher key. It will not be a difficult encryption to break, but should remove the 'browser' company based hacker.
However, if you would like a more robust encryption, look at the java cryptography extension. You can use ciphers, RSA type encryption, ect.
If you have any other questions, I will be happy to answer them.
