Retrieve data in IMS from J2EE application

Currently, i have a J2EE application that retrieves data from IMS database through MQ. We would like to fetch data directly instead – without using MQ. Is there any option? Any connectors that we could deploy in our server (WAS 6) that would help us communicate to IMS and retrieve data from it? Any links in this regard would also be helpful.
