There exists an ODBC driver for Adabas D. See e.g
http://addons.searchalot.com/texis/open/search?&q=unix+odbc+adabas

Writing it from scratch is surla not a snap and need knowledge about the native C API and ODBC. That you are trying it for the first time suggest that you does not have expereriences in that areas. So be prepared for a tough time.

Ask yourself if  that is  really what you want, or if it wouldn't be better to use the native  API for it.

Adabas is non-SQL database
Adabas D is SQL database which turned into MaxDB (German company SAP took German-made major DB and polished it for their needs)
