AFAIK, you'll have a hard time doing it :-(

Who has done these designers?
Wouldn't it have been easier to implement the designers in .NET?

Only two solutions come to my mind:

[1] Use IKVM instead of a "regular" Java VM.
    Your designers will probably not run because ClassPath does
    not implement enough of AWT/Swing, but in principle (or if
    your designers were implemented with SWT) it should work.

[2] Use some product from MindSoft, I don't know how much they
    cost, but they can run .NET code inside a JVM.
