If you coded your application correctly, there shouldn't be any issues. Maybe classpath, but that is not really part of the application. Hence, the Write Once Run Anywhere (WORA) nature of JAVA.

Watch out for your "hardcoded" (if any) path separators ( ";" -> ":" ) or directory separators ( "\" -> "/" ). Do it the right way by using the features of the File class.
