      Consider the following script

      println org.apache.log4j.Category.class

      Save it as cp.groovy in a directory where the log4j jar isn't present (You can replace the log4j class with any class available in a jar that's handy, the issue is not specific to log4j and I've tested it with different libraries)

      Let's put the log4j library in c:\log4j-1.2.14.jar and invoke the script, setting the classpath:

      C:\work>groovy -cp c:\log4j-1.2.14.jar cp.groovy
      class org.apache.log4j.Category

      Now add another directory at the beginning of the classpath (a directory where, of course, the jar isn't present).

      C:\work>groovy -cp c:\temp;c:\log4j-1.2.14.jar cp.groovy
      Caught: groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: org for class: cp

      The library is not recognized (and thus Groovy treats the fully qualified name as a chain of property accesses). I monitored file access with Sysinternals' FileMon and there's no attempt to read second jar.
