I have a requirement to invoke a desktop .net application from a wrapper, which is mainly required for authenticating user's login details using ldap. Although the best option would be to use would be VB.NET but I do not have any experience on that.

Would it be possible to use Java to invoke this desktop .net application?

Please advice.

Is that all it does? Authenticating directly against the LDAP server from Java might be an easier option (and platform independent).

Yeh, that is all what the wrapper interface is meant to achieve, just perform the authentication using LDAP and invoke the .net app (this is a third party app with their own login screen that we want to bypass)
