How to handle a problem when an Entity has a mapped CHAR(2) field, and trailing spaces of it appear to be lost, resulting in non-successful updating/deleting of entities?

This is noticed because Eclipselink's SQL logs at FINE level show update/delete statements with:

  bind => [2014-10-02T18:47:09, 1]

despite it should be:

  bind => [2014-10-02T18:47:09, 1 ]

Closer inspection has shown that it has been the entity's find() method which has returned "1" despite it should have returned "1 " for the CHAR(2) column.
