Hello friends,
I am thinking of making one search option for my application ,like google search.
E.g. If i start typing ja....
then immeditely for response it will give me options like ,, java,java server pages ..all the avialable option from database.

An active search tool/text box ,which w'll generate output on the basis of keywords typed.

I have seen some of the such application in live websites (e.g google, irctc.co.in search box for train booking.)

can anyone guide me which lang or technology i use to to this.

I'll be greatful if anyone can suggest me and guide me to go further on it.

Thanks.

One way to do this is by using JavaScript and AJAX. Assuming that you are just starting, you could search the web for JavaScript libraries. There are plenty of these and you could choose one as per your other requirements.

Since we are discussing this on a Java forum, I would suggest you checkout Google Web Toolkit (GWT) - http://code.google.com/webtoolkit/.

Its a good solution for developing AJAX application. Using it, you can write your code in Java and its compiler would covert it to JavaScript.

So, visit the above url and I am sure you will be able to build your search app thereafter. In case, you are still stuck, continue this thread.

What did you search for? The terms that should give you results are: Ajax AutoComplete or Ajax Suggest

Ajax is having issues with browsers.
GWT is superb but performance threat, if you use it extensvely.
