That is called an "autocompleter" or sometimes "suggest widget". And it's not something you can use JSP to accomplish.

I've moved this to the JavaScript forum.

You might want to look at AJAX (to send/receive data to/from server). And how to sort the content of a drop down box based on what the user types in it.
