John,

We've done something similar with our Visa application. The Visa
application has an option to get data for authorizations from a data
queue, performs the authorization via a Visa VAP on the customer's
premises, and returns the result to a response data queue. You should be
able to interface to data queues from your Java application using a
server-side method. Do you think this would work? I'm also curious why
you are using Bisynch for authorizations? I thought Visa (and others)
are phasing out Bisynch?
