The Java spec is open, write your own JVM.

There are many open source JVMs out there. The JVM is not hard to clone, it's the support libraries that come with Java that are hard to reproduce, simply due to the immense complexity and scope that they cover.

With that said, GCJ + GNU Classpath is almost there, but as the WINE and Mono folks know, it's hard playing catchup to a moving target.
