JAXB unmarshal problem with XSD choice element

Hi,
I'm experiencing a problem unmarshalling a <choice> element in an XML document using JAXB RI 2.2.1.

The element is defined as follows (the full XSD is too large to post):



Here is the XML I'm trying to unmarshal:



When I run the document through the unmarshaller, the resulting PatternExpression object contains the PatternOperator and a single Pattern, which happens to be the last one in the sequence.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to why the Pattern objects are not being added to the list?

I would think that the presence of the PatternOperator would allow JAXB to determine what <choice> the element fall into.

FYI, the XML schema is controlled by a 3rd party, so it cannot be modified.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
