Would be interesting, but the virtual machine would run _extremely_ slow. However, the part of the JVM instruction set that I have seen is very simple (it's a stack machine), but AWT etc. would probably be a "no-no" because of speed, complexity, etc. But a JVM that interprets a subset of JAVA bytecode could be interesting. Holger from REBOL Tech. once worked on a JVM implementation for the Amiga, so perhaps he can tell us if such a project would be feasible. Holger?
