JAXB can't handle interfaces.

I have a problem with jaxb and I was wondering if someone came across with it:
I have a class (class Car) that implements an interface (interface CarIfc), and I want to be able to marshall and unmarshall the Car class.
when activating the JaxbMarshaller, I get the following error:
Car is an interface, and JAXB can't handle interfaces.
do you have any idea how can I use interfaces in JAXB?
If not, is there any other XML framework that handles interfaces?

thanks in advance
