 Description  « Hide

When JAXBContext is instantiated based on multiple classes and one of the class contains a property that is annotated with @XmlAnyElement. This causes other classes to be stored in the rootmap not as ClassBeanInfoImpl, thus causing unmarshal process returning JAXBElement as opposed to the actual class. (See examples below to replicate it). The issue is in line 333, [rootMap.put(n.getElementName(),bi);] Because it does not check whether there is already an entry there or not, thus all elements found in the typeSet is put into rootMap and overriding previous registry entry of ClassBeanInfoImpl for that Name.

I have working small isolated eclipse project to replicate this issue. Email me if you want, the fix should be simple.
