If you have a modern browser that isn't IE, then you can try the fetch api. https://css-tricks.com/using-fetch/ Otherwise google ajax without jquery and see if one of those responses makes sense. Any real reason to not use jquery? Minified it isn't that big, and the ajax calls are simple.

Subject: Web service for dummies?

This has to be simpler than I am making it. I have a web page (
louie.martinvt.com ) that presents a simple page of states and cities. It is
populated with a .json file located with the page.

The actual .json file is produced with an RPGLE program (using Scott's
YAJL) and a regular physical file. My intention is to have an RPG web service
provide that .json file and it be accepted by my web page's javascript. I have
used Scott's program for that but I am missing something.

So far, all of the articles & examples I find discuss solutions requiring php,
jquery, or some other ancillary product.

I have looked for a simple "Hello World" solution that goes end-to-end and
had no luck.

Any examples or tutorials that are dumbed way down, so I can at least see
what it is I am supposed to be doing?
