@XMLRootElement, Jersey 1.8 - JSON output

Hi Guys,

I recently upgraded my IDE from Netbeans 7.0.1 to 7.1.1 and it turned out that the new version comes with Jersey 1.8 ( I guess the older one used to have 1.6). Anyway, I have a web service that used to honor my @XMLRootElement(name="xyz") annotation for JSON outputs but after upgrading the jersey, it stopped honoring @XMLRootElement(name="xyz") annotation completely.

I have been searching the posts and came across somebody that has the same problem an got over with wrapping the returned List with a wrapper class, which isn't look good, I mean creating one more object just to force the root element name.

Any help is appreciated,

Thank you..
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
