RIOT targets devices that don't have enough RAM to run Linux.
The official Java embedded VMs are way too fat for those devices, as
they're just stripped-down versions of the original POSIX-based codebase.

There are some specialized VMs for constrained devices which are
probably portable to RIOT. Maybe take a look how the Lego guys did it [1].
