Hi all,

I want to implement an autosuggest drop-down using ajax in Servlets and JSPs.I want to maintain the drop down values in an XML and load the XML and display the values in the drop-down.This is really important for me.I have been trying but not able to succeed.
Looking forward for your help.
Thanks in advance.

There are tons of tutorials out there on the web to do it along with libraries that do it.

Thanks Eric.
But the exact place where I am getting stuck is I want to populate the dropdown box values from an XML and not from database.
Can you please help me out with loading of the XML.
