Thank you Peter.  I am already writing a .json file with RPG using Scott's yajl library.  Super simple and works just fine.

My current goal is to go the next step and offer the output as a REST web service.  I would explain it a bit more, but as is evident, I am confused about the process so anything I might write about it should be viewed with caution.

Not sure if you are set on a DB2 file outputting JSON and then writing it out....I haven't played with JSON in that way.  But I am using CGIDEV2 in a SQLRPGLE program and it simply outputs JSON as part of an HTML template where I iterate through the DB records, and use updhtmlvar to update each json value in the template and just write it out.  You can see it in action here:
