    There's your problem. You need to somehow downgrade your copy of java. Minecraft is using deprecated function (AKA being terrible). on a side note, is this the installed version or the launcher that you are using because the installed version doesn't work for me either :p

    That shouldn't be the problem, I get the same warning but minecraft works fine. Maybe try to remove your .minecraft directory (was it copied from old computer?). If that doesn't work, can I see full log? And what game versions did you try?
