Submission + - asking slashdot: port a java program from XP to (any) linux

idanity writes: I have a small but useful java program that only runs on (m.s.)XP.
I would like to run this program in my fedora 20 laptop. or any GNU/Linux system.
  the basics.
  the (java) program is used to tune an ECU chip in my car yet the software is buggy and only runs on XP while the owners have no intention of updating. As they have laid off the author after he was finished.
  I have requested them to update the software and want to help them (and myself) to being able to use this program in GNU/Linux.

  where do I start, and what is there to do?
primarily I never want to run XP, or need to use microsofts os's to do such a tiny thing
secondly, I wish to see this program become useful and function as it would help everyone who's already invested in it (I am invested over 1k into it sofar (for the hardware)).
