Java XML Parsing Standards


Has anyone ever done any type of XML paring with elements that have dashes in the names?  I don't think its possible, any ideas?

       <First-Name> 3119043033121014002</First-Name>
       <Last-Name> 3119043033121014002</Last-Name>

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Yes there's nothing wrong with dashes

how would you parse that in Java?  You can't create a Class or a property with a dash in it.   I basically need to find a way to read that xml, any ideas?

You don't need to - it's an element name (which is a String)

put it like

    @XmlElement(name="First-Name", required=true)
    private String firstName;
