      Description

      Support for -Djava.system.class.loader=org.codehaus.groovy.tools.RootLoader is missing for Java 12+. The constructor that accepts ClassLoader is private. See code excerpt below that tries to call this constructor using reflection.

      java.lang.ClassLoader

          static synchronized ClassLoader initSystemClassLoader() {
              // ...
              String cn = System.getProperty("java.system.class.loader");
              if (cn != null) {
                  try {
                      // custom class loader is only supported to be loaded from unnamed module
                      Constructor<?> ctor = Class.forName(cn, false, builtinLoader)
                                                 .getDeclaredConstructor(ClassLoader.class);
                      scl = (ClassLoader) ctor.newInstance(builtinLoader);
