Issues in JAXB conversion of List<String>

Hello everyone,

I have a SOAP based WebService, that returns the following object as response

The SOAP message looks like this

<customFieldNames>Sales Associate ID</customFieldNames>
<customFieldNames>Sales Associate ID</customFieldNames>

When this SOAP message is converted to a JAXB object I get a List<String> for customFieldNames
The customFieldNames list should have 2 elemnts
customFieldNames[0]= Sales Associate ID
customFieldNames[1]= feedback

Instead I get a list with 4 elements
customFieldNames[0]= Sales
customFieldNames[1]= Associate
customFieldNames[2]= ID
customFieldNames[3]= feedback

Any idea why this is happening? Any pointers are highly appreciated.

<customFieldNames>Sales Associate ID</customFieldNames>

Can you try with under score like <customFieldNames>Sales_Associate_ID</customFieldNames>
I agree. Here's the link:
