I wrote my own JVM. It kept me off the streets at night. A JVM is nothing
but a switch statement in a loop, but the number of native methods necessary
to support the base classes is a little depressing.

I believe there are open source JVMs compatible with the Interbase public
license that could be adapted.

So, more than an afternoon, less than a lifetime. Software is 60% plagarism,
40% hard work, and the rest innovation (I don't believe that, but my last
boss did).
