Hi Hari,
Thank you so much I have been having this issue as well and after a lot of frustrated googling your workaround worked like a charm!
If there’s any way to help fix this issue I’d be happy to help. I’m attaching some log files if anyone wants to work on this.

I got a temporary workaround despite running Java 1.8 u40 I downloaded the standalone JVM containing version of Jalview from the website This Jalview.app does not launch on my Mac OSX running 10.10.2 Yosemite...it just blinks and disappears I then looked at the readme for the standalone app and am launching Jalview from the commandline using this alias.: alias jalview='java -Djava.ext.dirs=/Applications/Jalview/lib -jar /Applications/Jalview/jalview.jar' I still dont know why the java webstart run jalview.jnlp does not show menus when run under the identical setup. I am also hoping that I can get the app to work. Thanks Hari
