Hi Pradipta...

It will be nice if you can use

searchReq.onreadystatechange=handleSearchSuggest;
searchReq.open("Get",url,true);

instead of

searchReq.open("POST",'suggest_servlet2', true);
searchReq.onreadystatechange = handleSearchSuggest;
...

I tried my perfectly running example using your code and i too didn't get the result ....
but i am getting the result with the above code...

I think it will solve it...

And i don't know much but if it is ajax then why do you need to POST the arguements..... as no one can see the aruguments flowing from one page to another.....

Thanks

AJAX is very easy and useful thing to have in your bag. Please go through this. This will give you basic introduction of AJAX.

Welcome to Ranch, Vipin Gandhi!

POST is used specially when sending large amount of data to the server as GET has size limitation.

Yes you need a Web server, where your servlets/JSP etc... reside so that you can send the request and get a response. Go through the link provided by Rupesh Mhatre above to get the basics right.
