Hmm.. ok.

Just I usually prefer using fixed field lengths as queries tend to be
significantly faster. Also, you can use them in indexes.

I find it strange that that would be the case...

And it leads me to wonder how you would represent an ending  "space" in a

for example
insert into names values(1,'This is a space    ');

for perhaps some sort of formatting or something otherwise.

I'll try and find something in the postgres documentation to disable this
then I guess.

I'm not a JDBC expert, but this is pretty much the way I'd expect it to
work.  If you a have fixed length field, then the field should return
that many characters.  The varchar implies it's variable length, so
trailing spaces would then not be included.
