In Forth and PostScript the stacks are explicit. In Java they are hidden, except for printStackTrace.
Local variables are often called stack variables because they are stored on the stack. In Java, the stack contains the local variables for each running method is the thread and the places to return to in the calling program for each level of call. If you call too many methods without returning (usually by using recursion) you will generate a StackOverFlowError.
