I'm affraid I really don't understand exactly what you are asking. Do you want to develop a Java application that uses existing VB code? Do you want to access DLLs? If you have DLLs (written with VB or C/C++) that have exported functions, then you can access those easily enough with JNI. There is another thread here (use the Artima Search to find it) with more on this.

C is the lingua franca of most other higher-level languages including VB, Python, Java, Ruby, etc. That means they usually allow for a bridge to C, which you can bridge to the other language.
