That's what Java is all about: "Write once, run anywhere."

Eclipse is written in Java, so...

True but sometimes I find that the Java archives work best on the platform they're written for.

Oh, sure. Java code can be portable, but it's perfectly possible to write non-portable code in it.

The chief developer at a former employer which did a lot of work in Java was eloquent (in a Russian accented fashion) on differences between JREs on different architectures that could bite you.

And just because it's portable and can run on a different platform, doesn't mean it will work acceptably. Try taking Java code written for a smartphone with a small touch screen display, and running it on a PC. Assuming you want to do the same thing on each device, at minimum you'll need to rewrite the display code and the UI for the larger PC screen.
