VB to WEB

Hello All :
We have an application in VB with different components for GUI (EXE), Business(DLL), and Database connection(DLL).
We are planning to move to web based application.
I was wondering if we could use these existing components in web based application instead of rewriting the whole stuff.
Any ideas ?
Thanks

Obviously you will be re-writing your interface to use HTML forms or Java applets. The DLL libraries should be re-usable through standard Java JNI methods, but note that using the DLLs will restrict you to Intel/Microsoft servers.
