We have a web page served directly off our IBMi system (out of the IFS). We want users to be able to maintain data from there (equivalent to green screen work-with & maintenance, but in a browser). I've tried looking for examples of how to update a database from JavaScript but they don't make any sense to me. I think I'm missing some crucial piece of understanding that is fundamental to Java and therefore assumed knowledge in the examples. (35+ years programing in RPG, but very limited Java skills.) Appreciate any help.

Software/Hardware used:
IBMi 7.2, any browser
