CronSequenceGenerator constructor goes into infinite loop with invalid increments [SPR-12871] #17469

Edward opened SPR-12871 and commented

The constructor for the will go into an infinite loop if one of the fields is of the form n/0

For example

public static void main (String[] s) {
    new CronSequenceGenerator("*/0 * * * * *");
    System.out.println("We will never get here");

I guess that either the /0 should be ignored, or it should throw an IllegalArgumentException

Affects: 3.2.13, 4.1.6

Good catch. We're explicitly checking the incrementer delta to be 1 or higher now, raising a descriptive IllegalArgumentException if invalid. (Negative deltas led to a non-descriptive IndexOutOfBoundsException before.)
