    I'm trying to implement my system with a brokerage firm's API written in Java. I intend to build the interface using VB.NET and SQL Server back-end, but what hurdles will I have to overcome to sync up with firm's API calls?

    It depends on what API's they expose and how they expose them. If they are true API's then you shuold be able to use most anything to call the API's. Without more specific it would be hard to guess. Another solution might be a shim. I created a shim for some software that used Tradestation API's. The software thinks it is talking to Tradestation but in fact is is talking to something entirely different. You may also have to decide if the end goal is worth the effort.

    It's up to the broker's API, also your programming skills.
