Talk to java program via ms access class module?

Hi to every one:
I am asking about the class module in ms access.
Can I make one usable to all programming languages?
For instance , I need to make class module , accept the empID, and return all employee data.
Like his name, hireDate, department, … etc.
My scenario is:
1-      Press A button on a ms access form.
2-      The button trigger the class module .
3-      The class module send the empID to a java program (which is connect to oracle database), and receive the rest of employee data from oracle database via the java program.
4-      The reason is they don’t want the ms access program to connect directly to the oracle databse.
Is it poseple? And is it good approach to do so?
Please help.

Yes, thats the right approach. I am using a similiar approach too, but not with Java but with Ruby on Rails.
The Java program should provide a SOAP or a XML interface.

Have a  look at:

will they not let you connect to oracle using odbc, if they set up a user as readonly on oracle and you use that to create your odbc?
