Hello,
I am working on a conversion project which needs to port an application from Microsoft technologies to Java. But we want to reuse their VB COM components which are already developed.
We need the front end to be converted to java technologies and to use Websphere application server. Could any one please suggest the most appropriate and efficient architecture for this requirement. Thanks for your help in advance.

There are quite a few Java to COM (and COM to Java) bridging technologies. The ones I have successfully used so far is from linar.com (Intrinsyc) called jIntegra.
It allows Java-COM and COM-Java communication, pretty effortlessly. Also, since the communication is handled in pure Java, by communicating to COM components using DCOM protocol, you are not tied to any native code in your Java application.
I have also seen one from AlphaWorks.
Hope this helps.
