the acyclic module graph

in the sadly few hours of my spare time these days I am trying to
understand jigsaw better and I came across the condition that the module
graph should be acyclic... which made me wonder...
So Let us assume there is a module groovy.runtime and a module app0,
which is written in Groovy. groovy.runtime exports a equally named
package for general use. Since app0 is written in Groovy there is the
high possibility that I will have to invoke arbitrary methods from app0
from inside groovy.runtime. Meaning app0 needs to give a read edge to
groovy.runtime for app0. So app0 depends on groovy.runtime and
groovy.runtime depends on app0... is that a cricular dependency that is
forbidden... or was it only for compile time?
