The point is that the JSON holds data and you are presumably downloading it to display it in something user friendly on the page - like a data grid or graph or something. However, if they user is savvy, they can just use the address bar to point at (and download) the raw JSON data as well, which might not be so good (depending on what is in it).

A couple of points:

First, I have a lot to learn about how all this can/should work, so I have to keep it simple.

Second, my thought for the moment is that by staying on the Intranet and using normal iSeries security, the data should be as secure in one place as the other. Additionally, in my experience, when users see their data in graphical presentations they understand it better. That often leads to new consequences - sometimes bad but on balance more often good.
Therefore the game is worth the candle. imho.

first of all - I couldn't dream of serving data from static xml-files for data but I do use static XSLT files that may be shared in pages. ...
