As far as I know the only modern platform that doesn't support Java is iOS.
99% platform support Java. Java is the second most popular plugin after
flash. Flash is being phased out and HTML5 is used these days. One major
reason to rewrite OpenOffice in Java because Java support many languages
(Scala, Jython, JRuby). JavaFX is moder UI framework for Java that also
support HTML5. It will be easier to support a Java based OpenOffice due to
Java's cross platform nature.
