Is there any way to use Visual basic forms as presentation layer in java based web application.We are migrating an visual basic application to JEE based web application.all UI part well designed in visual basic.So we have planned to maintain Visual basic as UI layer.

Please suggest how to implement this.We not planned to add new technology for UI because the learning curve will be high and cost also.

Yes, you can use HTTP to send requests to the JEE based web application and exchange data using xml or JSON Strings.
Check out on what JSON is here
