Interesting, thanks for the report. You are likely the first person to really try using Eclipse on aarch64 :-o
Now that it's easy to get aarch64 with 4GB+ RAM I expect the architecture will be getting more popular outside the phone market soon.
I'm using the RK3399 SOC for which there are ~20 consumer products including a Samsung laptop, and an Odroid SBC.

I think this may have been working in the F26 timeframe, I had it installed, and basically ran through the menus on my "desktop" machine after upgrading it to f28 checking if everything started, and it was one of the things that failed.
So its still broken in f28.
If F26 was using code from between 2015-11-19 and 2017-01-12 (YYYY-MM-DD) it might have worked because that is when eclipse built for aarch64 and as far as I know all distributions with eclipse builds after version 3.x just package upstream binaries;
We build all our binaries from source in Fedora. I have added what I hope is the fix to get the arm binaries working to the rawhide branch, but rawhide Eclipse is currently broken for unrelated reasons.
I will backport my fix to F28/F27 and I would appreciate your testing since I have no real access to arm hardware right now :-) -- I will report back here once a testable build completes

Can you try with this build on F28?
Feedback would be greatly appreciated!
Looks like its working now, that I fixed a nfs lock problem.
Thanks for testing :-)
