Why not get into C# ? Looks a lot like Java and you can use VB with it and have it complied by the same compiler with the new Studio.Net.
I'm not saying you should prefer C# over Java, but if you want to do9 things with VB you aren't platform independent anymore anyway, so you might as well use C# then.

The alternative is to use the JNI (Java Native Interface) to blend the non-java code with java.
