Example code for CollatorSQLChar

StringDataValue getValue(RuleBasedCollator collation)
    if (collation == null)
      // Just need UCS_BASIC collation
      SQLChar s = new SQLChar();
      return s;

     return this;

I'm assuming that this call is made once when an Activation is 
initialized and not for every compared value.
