J2EE application talking to thick client

our J2EE application (using spring) needs to talk to VB .NET thick clients. this would be two way communications. two of the scenarios are

1)J2EE app sending notifications to .NET thick clients (multiple clients)

2).NET client sending message (notification) to J2EE application and waiting for confirmation.

what are the technology options we can explore?

thanks

Off hand, I don't know of any API bridges in either technology (since they are generally not friends), but you can always rely on web-based messaging such as servlets and web services to send messages.
