TopLink returns following error:
java.sql.SQLException: ORA-00972: identifier is too long Error Code: 972
This happens when an underlying database column has a name that contains 30 characters. As TopLink adds some additional numbers when generating the alias for the columns, the maximum length of the alias exceeds 30 characters which causes an ORA-00972 error.
