I need to implement a smartsearch that can detect even typo. e.g if I type korbi it should also detect corvi,korvi .
Can somebody suggest an apporach?

The easy part is having a FieldChangeListener on a text Field - then you get told whenever a key is entered and you can find out what the user has typed in.
The hard part is deciding what the user really meant. This is not a Blackberry specific problem but a general problem. But I suspect it involves searching a database for possible matches and making this search both very clever and very fast.
What options have you considered for doing this?

I thought to use autocompleteeditfield and include the words from database as filteredlist but don't know how to recognize what user is meant to type and display matching words

"but don't know how to recognize what user is meant to type and display matching". Just for clarification, I was just wondering if this is a BlackBerry related question? You would have this problem trying to develop this functionality on another platform?
