Hello Google Web Toolkit (Part 2)

I asked and received permission from Packt Publishing to turn the samples from "Google Web Toolkit: GWT Java AJAX Programming", by Prabhakar Chaganti, into NetBeans projects and distribute them. Great. Here's the next one, available here in the Plugin Portal, together with the one from yesterday. The new one looks as follows:

Deploy it and you have an asynchronous auto complete box:

A problem with many of the samples in the book is that they're intertwined, sharing some of the same classes. I'm trying to separate them so that the samples can become small and self-contained. I haven't completely finished that with the above sample, but I've done enough to get it basically working, as far as I can tell. I want to take this specific sample and write a sequel to the new Introduction to the Google Web Toolkit Framework. The support that the IDE provides for GWT is really good. I've been impressed so far, anyway.
