I don't think it duplicates JDK-8074668 because Java Console message is different and clearly reveals property is considered insecure.

Additional information that may help:

For previous versions of Java, if you include the property apple.laf.useScreenMenuBar for a different OS, such as Windows OS, Java Console gives similar message, property considered insecure
-I think that's always been correct behavior because the property is only useful to Mac OS X

For previous versions of Java, menus will be missing on Mac OS X if you omit the property apple.laf.useScreenMenuBar
-Because property enables menus, leaving it out or ignoring the property takes away those menus.

Looks like this is a duplicate of https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8074668
It should be fixed in 8u40b27

I recently opened a report with Oracle for what I believe may be the same issue. It may impact many existing Mac OS X applications so should be considered seriously.

(Review ID: JI-9020016) - JNLP property apple.laf.useScreenMenuBar no longer treated as secure for Mac OS X
