I had not heard of  ADABAS, but I Googled a little, and it seems that
ADABAS has, at least as an option, an ODBC interface.

ODBC support is something that we should definitely think about.  There
is a free API available ( ).

It would be fairly straightforward to extend the GET DATA command so
that a command like "GET DATA /TYPE=odbc ..." would read in the data.

This would work in very much the same way as the Postgres interface.
In fact, if any wants to code this, I suggest using src/data/psql-reader.c
as a template since the ODBC API seems similar in many ways.
