      Description

      According to the certified stack of Magnolia 5.7, Java 11 is supported. However, when it comes to groovy script execution, it is failing whereas same script with java 8 works ok. This is not happening in Magnolia 6.1

      Steps to reproduce:

      1. Execute the following script in Magnolia 5.7.X with java 8
        import info.magnolia.cms.security.MgnlUser;
        import info.magnolia.context.MgnlContext;
        MgnlUser user = MgnlContext.getUser();
        println user.getName();
        
      1. Switch jdk to java 11 and execute it again. You will see following error:
        General error during semantic analysis: Unsupported class file major version 55
         
        java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: Unsupported class file major version 55

        ....
         
        1 error
         
        mgnl>  
        

      You can get rid of the issue by replacing groovy-2.5.0.jar and groovy-xml-2.5.0.jar with groovy-2.5.7.jar and groovy-xml-2.5.7.jar. Therefore, groovy dependencies within the BOM for third party modules of Magnolia 5.7 should be updated to 2.5.7 like in Magnolia 6.1
