Push data to a Joomla environment via com_ajax

What seems a simple thing is proving quite puzzling to me and I need a few hints. The scenario is site A will from time to time send some data to site J (a Joomla environment) to process. Site J has no inclination that site A will do this. Site J does not initiate the exchange, site A does. This is strictly server to server. There is no human interface.

I have read the documentation and I get the impression this can be done with com_ajax with a cURL call from site A. I just can’t understand how, what the relationship is between helper.php and modulename.php and what does Javascript have to do with this (there is no UI)? What I really need is an explanation of the flow. Can someone enlighten me, please.
