Why Java is said to be platform independent while C & C++ is not when Java Complier & JVM is different for every OS .?

That's the point, the JVM is handling the issues with the os, so I can write one set of code and it will work in ANY properly built JVM. It is my application code that is platform independant, not the JVM or JRE.
