    Hi ,

    I have a desktop based java application which runs on Windows and Mac. The UI and Logic of that is well differentiated. Can I reuse the logic part(which will be a jar) and build the UI in an Windows 8 metro app ? Is it possible to talk to the Java layer ?

    In My Java app, I create an exe which bundles runtime(JRE) also to execute the Jar.

    I am new to Windows development and want to understand if I can create a bridge between this two layer.

    Any help/suggestions will be hugely appreciated.
