0047831: Problem introducing long descriptions in some tables (CORE)

DescriptionThis problem occurs only on an Oracle database. The problem is that the DESCRIPTION field, of some core tables listed below, is defined as VARCHAR2(255 BYTE). The DESCRIPTION field is limited to 255 CHARACTERS long, so if all these characters don't exceed the limit of 255 BYTES there is no problem (e.g 255 characters of 1 BYTE each). The problem comes when the description contains characters larger than 1 BYTE. If the description is a long one, for example one with 255 characters, the characters limit is not exceeded, but if it contains some characters larger than 1 BYTE, like for example the º character that occupies 2 BYTES, then the limit of 255 BYTES is exceeded (254 one-byte characters, plus one of 2 bytes make 256 bytes, which do not fit in the field defined in the database). I indicate below all the tables from core affected:

OBUIAPP_PROCESS_TRL (Module: org.openbravo.client.application)
OBUIAPP_MENU_PARAMETERS (Module: org.openbravo.client.application)
OBUIAPP_VIEW_IMPL (Module: org.openbravo.client.application)
OBUIAPP_NAVBAR_COMPONENT (Module: org.openbravo.client.application)
OBUIAPP_PROCESS (Module: org.openbravo.client.application)
Steps To Reproduce1. Go to any window that makes use of some of the tables listed above (e.g Payment Method window for the FIN_PAYMENTMETHOD table)
2. Create a new record and in the DESCRIPTION field input a long description reaching the limit of 255 characters and containing some characters larger than 1 BYTE, like for example the º characters. (Try with this description for example: This is a description example:ººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººººº)
3. Try to save the record, you will get an error similar to this one: ERROR: Saving failed. ORA-12899: value too large for column "ERP_PI_ORACLE"."FIN_PAYMENTMETHOD"."DESCRIPTION" (actual: 480, maximum: 255)
Proposed Solution1. Change column definition of the DESCRIPTION field from VARCHAR to NVARCHAR for all the tables affected
