      Following exception is thrown when we run below command.

      This is because we annotate containerLogFiles list with XmlElementWrapper which generates XML output as under. And when we read this XML at client side, reading the value associated with containerLogFiles also leads to one value being syslogstderrstdout because both parent and child tags are same. This leads to the exception.


      Moreover, as we use XMLElementWrapper, the JSON generated is as under. This JSON cannot be properly parsed by JSON parser(as a list). This is because child containerLogsFiles entries are treated as a key-value pair(map) and hence only last entry i.e. stdout is picked up. This was found while working on YARN-4517. This makes output unusable.
      This will be an issue for 2 REST endpoints i.e. /ws/v1/node/containers and /ws/v1/node/containers/{{containerId}}


      Ideally the JSON output should be as under.


      We can indicate in the JAXB context to ignore the outer wrapper while marshalling to JSON. But this can only be done at class level. If we do so for ContainerInfo, it would break backward compatibility.
      Hence, to fix it we can remove XmlElementWrapper annotation for containerLogFiles list.
      Another solution would be to wrap the list inside another class.

      But going with former as of now as we do not specify XmlElementWrapper for lists at most of the places in our code.
