      Description

      The changes in JDK 14 via JDK-8212117 to align Class.forName with its specification may need follow on work in the core reflection code that obtains the Type of a field with parameterized type.

      The sighting on core-libs-dev is here:
        https://mail.openjdk.java.net/pipermail/core-libs-dev/2019-October/062747.html

      In the example, Service can be loaded but not linked. It may be that makeNamedType needs to catch NoClassDefFoundError so that TypeNotPresentException can be thrown.
