    Default

    Set up your gui. You can use an ActionListener added to the entry textField and/or a JButton to start processing the search. In the actionPerformed method read the string in from the entry textField and send it to a search method in which you traverse through the ArrayList and compare the search string with each item in the list. If you find a match set the text in the second textField.
