The OO Developer Site might be a good start for research.

No, they meant to show frustration. I do not know the answer, but if I needed/wanted to, you can bet I would click that link Ulf Dittmer supplied.

Just clicked on that link, and spent a whole 5 minutes on it. There does seem to be a Java library that is used to interface with it. There is also a mention of a beta JDBC driver.
