This bug was fixed in the package jayatana - 2.7-0ubuntu3.1

jayatana (2.7-0ubuntu3.1) vivid; urgency=medium

  * Do not export JAVA_TOOL_OPTION session file for now. It seems jayatana
    breaks some tools which are running java -version to grep for the runtime
    version. Openjdk hardcode though some outputs "Picked up <variable name>"
    that can't be suppress and isn't willing to remove it as they see it as
    a security vulnerability. Remove session variable export until java
    upstream get a proper upstream solution for Gnome Shell and Unity global
    menu. (LP: #1441487)
    Meanwhile, people who wants to keep this functionality enabled (or
    programs which knows are working well with it) can reexport
    $JAVA_TOOL_OPTIONS" in their session environment on a per program by
    program bases.
