Annotating a class with @XStreamAlias("event") fails to map to the class when mapping from XML to POJO.
So for a class:
public final class AuditEventURL
results in <ws.cogito.auditing.model.AuditEventURL> rather than <event>.
The work around is to configure xstream engine with an alias:
results in <event>
But I would think this is redundant given the annotation.
