How to connect Cisco AP1242 with WLC4402?

I just got a pair of Cisco APs and a WLC in order to play around for my Wireless CCNA certification. I'm having troubles connecting all 3 devices together. I believe I need a switch to connect them. In the WLC there are 2 ports which aren't Ethernet though 

 

Here is the picture: Cisco Devices

 

So:

  • Is it possible to connect the APs directly to the WLC?

  • If I need a switch, through which interface should I connect it?

Hi.
You need switch. Controller connect to switch through TRUNK. AP may connect through access.
And you need router.
