The technical term for this kind of control is "Combobox", so called because it's a combination of the text edit box control and a dropdown list control.

There isn't one in the core JSF control set, but RichFaces provides a ComboBox control, complete with AJAX support.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
