JAXB - Is it possible to read element attributes into Map

Hi,

Is the a way to read the attributes of an element into a Map (using JAXB), with the attribute name as a key in the map, and the attribute value as the value in the Map?

So, for the element:

<test attribute1="val1" attribute2="val2" attribute3="val3" />

Would get unmarshalled to the class:

class Test {
Map<String,String> attributes;
}

And the attributes map would contain the attribute name as the key, and the attribute value as the map value.

Thanks.
