[Eclipse - Axis] Generate Client from wsld, wrong type for unbounded elemen

Hi all!
I'm not expert on wsdl format, but in my work activities I have to take wsdl they send to me and generate Java code in Eclipse.

One of last wsdl they sent to me contains the following element:
<xs:element ref="ns0:CodicePraticaDistributore" minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded"/>
where ns0:CodicePraticaDistributore is:
<xs:element name="CodicePraticaDistributore" type="ns0:CodPratica"/>
and ns0:CodPratica is:
<xs:simpleType name="CodPratica">
     <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
          <xs:maxLength value="15"/>
(Sorry I don't report whole wsdl... but it's VERY long!)

When I do right click on the wsdl and follow Web Services - Generate Client and so on... the generated class contain following lines:
elemField.setXmlName(new javax.xml.namespace.QName("", "CodicePraticaDistributore"));
elemField.setXmlType(new javax.xml.namespace.QName("", "CodicePraticaDistributore"));
Which are wrong, 'cause the second argument for setXmlType should be CodPratica and not CodicePraticaDistributore.
The right one should be:
elemField.setXmlName(new javax.xml.namespace.QName("", "CodicePraticaDistributore"));
elemField.setXmlType(new javax.xml.namespace.QName("", "CodPratica"));
This makes Axis generate wrong xml, with addition of xsi:type="xsd:string" which makes the other system (where I send xml) to return me an error for bad xml format.
The generated xml code for this data is:
<CodicePraticaDistributore xsi:type="xsd:string">PN100000000110E</CodicePraticaDistributore>
While it should be simply:
I can't understand how to resolve this behaviour on Java generation (other than modifying the final generated Java Class).
Can you help me?
