Information in this document applies to any platform.
On a desktop that is configured to use double-byte characters, the character count validation in web workspace/web switching does not appear to work.
For example, in web switching, the switching request operator field is configured for a maximum of 20 characters. This matches the database schema. varchar2(20).
If you enter 15 double-byte characters in the field and press Save, web switching does not give an error. Instead, the save fails and the database gives an ORA-12899.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Copy/paste 20 double byte characters into the switching request operator field.
2. It will fail with the error ORA-12899
The desktop/operating system is configured to use double-byte characters.
