JST to Protoboard Connector

How is a lipo battery with a JST connector connected to a protoboard? Is there a adapter for this? Can I just jam a red and black wire in the JST connector?

Which protoboard ?
Can you give a link to it ?

I should have said breadboard. It is just a common breadboard, this style but bigger: Breadboard - Small Self-Adhesive - PRT-00137 - SparkFun Electronics

I would assume this is a common part, but I don't see the connector on SparkFun. It would be a male JST to jumper wire or maybe a JST socket. The JST connectors all look female.
