comment How should I handle exception that *should* never be thrown?
You can avoid having to deal with the UnsupportedEncodingException by using the overloaded methods that take a Charset Object instead of a String to specify the encoding. And I actually once ran into an UnsupportedEncodingException for UTF-8. That was a long time ago, though, and it turned out the machine ran some beta release of the Java 5 JDK.

@NPElover: Exactly!

comment Would this interpreter be considered a Virtual Machine?
@NPElover: No, I'm saying that you need an implementation-independant specification of how this machine works. Then you can claim that your JVM-based interpreter is just the prototype implementations of the spec.

comment Would this interpreter be considered a Virtual Machine?
@NPElover: in that case, I'd say that they interpreter by itself would not be considered a VM - it's an interpreter running on the JVM. You might have a case for calling it a VM if you ad all the stuff I mentioned exactly specified independent of the implementation and the JVM, so that it would be possible to implement your interpreter using, for example, C++ and still have programs work exactly the same.
