    Default Auto fill text field giving a value from a combo box (with database)

    Hi,
    I have a client-server project in Java. I have a form which contains a combo box that gets values from a database (database contains information on books names and authors). Under the combobox there is a text field. Now, when a book name is chosen from a combo box, the text field should be automatically filled with the name of the author of the selected book. How should a code for this be written?

    Add an ActionListener to the JComboBox to deal with user initiated selections and act appropriately.
