I have a string field in my database. Hibernate is mapping it as VARCHAR(255), but I need to store more data than that. Is there a way to tell Hibernate to use the database max? I've found ways to do it in annotations, but I'm using the xml files.
Oh, and I'm currently running on postgres with a possible port to oracle.

I'd set the property "length" value to be equal to your database column length definition.
In Oracle, you have to specify your VARCHAR2 length at creation time.
