Introscope java.net.MalformedURLException

I'm still on my Introscope kick, trying to get us up to speed as quickly as I can. Being the lone soldier in this process its a lot of work, between doing the grunt work as well as looking forward to get the visibility we need. As we upgraded to 7.2.1 the workstation web start seems to use a newer version of java which resulted in the following error:

java.net.MalformedURLException: unknown protocol: socket

This hit both IE and FireFox users. Upgrading to the latest version of web start resolved the issue!
