Salesforce - AS400 integration without ETL tools/ Middleware


I am new to Salesforce integration.
We have AS400 software which is at remote location which handles Contract Management currently. We are planning to make Contract Management happen in Salesforce. Presently, our AS400 system has only internal webservices to perform business related functionalities. Can anyone tell how to achieve /establish Salesforce - AS400 integration without ETL tools/ Middleware.
Please explain with a step-by-step process of what has to be done to establish the Integration between Salesforce and AS400

Responding to an old tread. Connecting Saas applications such as Salesforce directly to the back-end applications running on AS400 or anywhere else is not the most secure way to design the integrations. Middleware such as Mulesoft adds the extra protection in case of attacks, and offers convenient connectors for integrating with various systems such as AS400 or Salesforce. In order to directly connect Salesforce to AS400 DB or business logic you would have to write a custom Salesforce code that interacts with AS400 internal web services, or create a custom Java or node or PHP component that would play the role of the middleware and connect both to AS400 and Salesforce.
