jaxb customization of type used in xs:list defaults to string

I have some troubles getting a java type replacement working during unmarshaling using external customizations.

Take the following schema:

Now let's assume I would want to map the simpleType "float" to java.lang.Float instead of the default mapping java.lang.Double caused by its . I have no access to the original schema, so I couldn't just change the restriction to xs:float and have to an external customization as follows:

After running xjc, SomeNumbersType.getOneNumber() now returns a Float instead of a Double as desired. However, SomeNumbersType.getArray() returns a List instead of the expected List. It seems like the javaType binding did not work for , even worse it caused the array type to fall back to java.lang.String.

I have spent hours reading the spec and other documentation but still couldn't figure how to correctly replace this mapping to the excepted List.

Is this a bug, or have I misunderstood the binding process? I am using JAXB 2.1.10 bundled in JDK 6.

Thanks for any help on this!

best regards,

I'm also experiencing similar issues. I use JDK 1.7 update 7 and JavaTM Architecture for XML Binding(JAXB) Reference Implementation, v2.2.5-2.

Any resolution to this?
