XMLBeans is returning null on complex elements

I'm trying to use XMLBeans to parse an xml document. I have everything working up to a certain point.


The above code works fine, it parses with no errors, and prints the XML contents in its entirety. My problem, is that when I try to access the complex objects underneath the root element, the xmlbeans code is returning null. I have no error, or indication of any problem that could be occurring.

<root>
<ComplexType>
<simpleElement1>someText1</simpleElement1>
<ComplexType2>
<simpleElement2><someText2</simpleElement2>
...and so on

Why would I be able to do a requestObj.getComplexType().getSimpleElement1()
but
the ..getComplexType2() returns a null object?

Any ideas?
