Today I installed groovy on my new laptop with JVM 12. I downloaded Java from the official website and install groovy via brew
brew install groovy

After a bit of search, I realised there is a PR on https://github.com/apache/groovy/pull/811/
Unfortunately, there is no fix at the moment, but the following workaround can ignore the error
