it would help to have more specifications of the reliability of the messaging. is there an acceptable loss rate ?

guaranteed delivery is very difficult, complex, and expensive compared to "best effort".

using a "best effort" approach, one generally will have a message queue on some kind of channel (a pipe). then there is a queue manager handling service requests to read and write the queue. you then might want to have an ACK/NACK component.

you also have to determine if you want a "publish-subscribe" protocol or a message-oriented protocol.

this should give you enough to start with for the first three to four months.

One way of communicating java with VB is by using XML. Bcoz both understand XML.

I think there are some 3rd party tools with help u in this bridge.

This is just a hint but not a entire soln.
