Local AdabasD connection

Hi gang. I'm using Software AG's AdabasD JDBC driver to connect to a local AdabasD database. I set it up in StarOffice 5.2 as an AdabasD database and then I created a JDBC reference to it. The problem that I am having ( both in SO and from code ) is that I can't get the URL right. The driver documentation shows how to specify the URL on a remote server. It's "jdbc:adabasd://<servername>/<serverdb>". So how do I make this work of the server is local to me? Is the serverdb relative to the location of the server? Do I need the full path to the .dat file?
I agree. Here's the link:
