Hi. I am currently trying to do a small program where i have some JTextFields, and i want to somehow have an autocompletion feature (the data that i need must be taken from an sql express 2008 server). Does anyone have any idea if such a feature exists in Java? Or any suggestions on how i might do this (it involves thousands of data to search from, so it needs to be efficient).
