You can connect via the JDBC-ODBC bridge.
ODBC drivers are usually written in native code which is the reason that you can't access them directly. The JDBC-ODBC bridge allows you to access them indirectly however.
The performance and functionality isn't often great when you use JDBC-ODBC bridge however, you'd be better off using a pure Java driver if possible.
I agree. Here's the link:
