LowfatspreadCommented:
sounds like your JAVA string is being defined with the spaces
or the assignment isn't calculating the correct length...

That is because the ANSI_PADDING is turned on by default on varchar columns. The nvarchar datatype does not pad your string.

You can turn off ANSI_PADDING by using the following command:
SET ANSI_PADDING OFF

However, it is recommended to keep the ANSI_PADDING turned on when creating indexes on computed columns.

CJ_S is absolutely right. You find out what the current setting is by running

SELECT DATABASEPROPERTYEX('DatabaseName', 'IsAnsiPaddingEnabled')

Return Values are,
1 = TRUE
0 = FALSE
NULL = Invalid input
