I need to connect progress data without adapters. How connect progress database using webfocus script?
Could you help this.

Short answer: You can't, that is what the adapters are there for.
OK, so if you need data... If it is a batch job, making a SQL extract off Progress to a flat file and then doing the eyecandy off that
Of course, a young guru might write and invoke some crazy script to do this even for adhoc to show off it can be done...
An old guru like me would sigh deeply and look with sad eyes and take the same attitude as to a 3-year old wanting candy in the store and say no.
If it is not just a one-off, it is cheaper in the long run to buy the adapter than to first pay someone to code that kind of jive and then someone to maintain it.

Or, if it is a full OpenEdge suite residing there, you might be able to use the OpenEdge WebServices to fetch the data. Not tried actually if you could invoke a PROGRESS language fetch with a script from FOCUS directly, but you can invoke scripts, handling the return is a bit challenging.

I agree with Hank's wisdom. Adapters are cheap compared to having custom code to maintain. The Progress adapter is a native adapter not just ODBC so it should perform well.
Thank you for using Focal Point!

You can however use a generic jdbc and use the Progress jdbc driver. As far as I know, not sure, generic JDBC is free.
Test: WF 8.2
Prod: WF 8.2
DB: Progress, REST, IBM UniVerse/UniData, SQLServer, MySQL, PostgreSQL, Oracle, Greenplum, Athena.
I believe even a Generic JDBC would count towards your Adapters once you configure it.
