Update Jython version to 2.7.2

Hi

Current supported Jython version is 2.5.3 on probes, this version was released in 2012.

I suggest an update to latest supported version 2.7.2 (released 03/2020), to get the improvements(security and functional) and be on a supported version of Jython. (2.7 branch was released 03/2015)

Moreover, current jython on probes has an issue with TLS certificate extensions, this issue was resolved in jython 2.7.1.
