Servlets running VB programs

If I have an Apache web server running JServ, can I use a servlet to run a VB program in a browser?
If it is possible, I have a feeling it involves ActiveX and can only be done in a Windows environment...but I may be wrong (I probably am). Does anybody have any experience in this area and know of how this could be done?
What I'm aiming to do is make a prototype in VB of a GUI that will later be written in Java. The hitch is that the GUI should be viewable in a web browser over a web server...and viewable by Wednesday!! Thanks for your help.
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
