Unix Connection Sockets

I've read that Java cannot connect to a serer using the old style unix conection sockets, but my server requires that I connect like this from PHP:

localhost:/home/*YOURUSERNAME*/*YOURDOMAIN.COM*/.database/mysql/mysql.sock

Which works fine with PHP, but I need to connect from a Java application. Is it possible with the Java API? Does anyone know of a library I can download that allows this?
