using java with ADABAS

I would like to write a java progam that connects to ADABAS on the mainframe, preferably under CICS.
I would need the jdbc drivers and an example of the connection url?

can this be done in a similar manner of connecting to DB2 or Derby, without having to buy additIonal products?
i saw in one forum a mention of the CONNX jdbc drivers but cannot find anymore about it.

Thanks in advance for any input on this topic.

Depending on what type of access you require the Adabas Client for Java might be all you need, have a look at the documentation.

For the “CONNX jdbc Drivers” you will need the ADABAS SQL Gateway product.
