hi all,

I am trying to use Struts 2 autocompleter tag to auto populate the list of names which i get from Database.
As soon as i am tying a character, its going to action and hitting the database but i am unable to see the data populating as dropdown.

Here's my code:

JSP code:

Action Class Code:

//Getters and setters


struts.xml code:[u][/u]



As soon as i start typing in the textbox , it hits the action class and goes to DB class and gets the arralylist and i am able to see the arraylist size as printout for each char i type in the searchbox of my jsp.
But i am unable to see the dropdown of the data. ( I have a column in DB table which i want to see as dropdown for each char i type)


Please help me where am i going wrong.

Thanks.

Please UseCodeTags when posting code or configuration. Unformatted code and configuration is very difficult to read. You can edit your post to include them by using the button.

I know the post is very old but it still shows up on search pages. So for anyone still looking for a solution.

In your xml file the param tag for result type json should return a json string.

"the output of the action must be a well formed JSON string."
