    Can JBoss/Java ignore trailing blanks?

    chengwah Newbie


      I'm new to JBoss and Java. My company has an existing system and we are doing R&D to transfer this system to J2EE using back the same Oracle database.

      Many of the database columns were set to Char datatype. As you know, there are trailing blanks if less characters were entered.

      I've got a problem when doing selection in my entity bean. The PreparedStatement will not ignore the blanks in the database.

      Is there a way in JBoss or Java to instruct it to ignore the blanks?
