running a simple vb macro

Not sure this counts as advanced, but here I go anyway...
I want to be able to run a vb macro from my java program.
I have looked on the Internet and it seems I need a 3rd party java-com bridge. At lot of these seem like overkill for what I want to do.
Does anyone know a simple way I can run a vb macro ?

IBM's Bean Scripting Framework. This would be best in the OO Scripting forum. I'll move it there.
I agree. Here's the link:
