Yes, the problem are the the following non-standard items :
Push in your code takes a second parameter, this is not standard.
Pop should not be called when the stack is empty, i added in checks.

the Datatype.IsNumeric is not standard, do you have code for that?
Maybe you can send me the dll where it is defined?

The method names push and pop are uppercase and not lower.
I have made other small changes that you can see in the source.

that sounds interesting. 
We need to see also the good parts of the Jena API,
what parts do you use and like?

well,don't take me wrong. But, I don't think that your code is
compatible as is,  please review my changes.

ok. that is fine.
We will cross this bridge later.
