XML to JSON producing undesired results

I’m using the
 org.json 
library, as seen below, to convert from XML to JSON

  <dependency>
<groupId>org.json</groupId>
<artifactId>json</artifactId>
<version>20160212</version>
</dependency>


A simple test case shows the problem I am having, see below: –

I have the following XML

<record>
<name>A108B</name>
</record>


which in turn, produces

{"record": { "id": "A108B" }}


Great! The problem occurs if
 id 
is

1111

Using the following code

XML.toJSONObject(xml...)


I get

{"record": { "name": 1111 }}


I’d actually prefer to keep the values as all strings, i.e. user identifiers. I don’t want the output changing depending on whether the identifier happens to not have a character in it.

Is there any way I can force org.json to do this? I can probably fork the code and make a change for myself but I would expect that this is a problem someone else has come across and has a solution for.
