IBM's solution ($$) is DRDA via the the IBM InfoSphere Federation Server (or whatever they call it today).

Also other 3rd party products that can do the same.

Easiest way to DIY without spending money on software is JDBC.  Scott Klement has some open source code that makes it faster and easier to integrate.  I've worked with his code library in the past and though it isn't quite production-quality code, it really is a big time-saver over creating it yourself.
