Although Hal makes a very compelling point regarding standardization, there is no reason you can't build this kind of system with different projects (and possibly projects of different languages). If you follow the methods I have described and properly build classes with methods (or properties) that accept the datatypes that you need to hand around, you can work quite comfortably with multi-project/language systems. (This still doesn' help your situation with app to app data handling.)

My development team has standardized on VB.NET for UI projects because of VB.NET's friendliness with the VS.NET IDE for UI design and C# for the other tiers because of C#'s native documentation features.
