Help me find this list picking interface element

Is there a name for the UI element with two list columns, and an add and a remove button between them that transfer list items from one column to the other? Is there a good free javascript implementation out there that would be easyish to integrate into a Spring Surf (Alfresco Share) application?

I've implemented it several times before as two JLists and two JButtons in a JPanel. Honestly, there's not really any need for an existing implementation. Just add the components to the JPanel, use an appropriate layout, and add a couple of ActionListeners to the buttons.

Oh, crap. You said "javascript" and "Spring", not "Java" and "Swing". Disregard.

The name is list picker or double list picker.

Here's some javascript code to help you get started.

I've come across it described as List Builder in Tidwell's Designing Interfaces.
