I would suggest searching through IBM Redbooks and IBM developerWorks.
I have never worked with anything related to AS/400, but I believe you might need to write some kind of a TCP socket application for calling a proxy server written in Java, which then translates the stuff you write through the socket into web service calls. But, as I said, I've never worked with AS/400.
