This method validated only fields length of the given expression, not the validity of cron expression. It seems logical that the method with name 'isValidExpression' would validate cron as well.
Plus, possible NPE fixed.

Affects: 4.3.8

Issue Links:

  • #20242 NullPointerException if cron expression is null ("is duplicated by")
  • #19500 Cron Expression validation

Thanks for raising this! I've implemented this in a slightly different fashion, doing some basic validation upfront and then using a custom CronSequenceGenerator created via a new constructor... so that we reduce the need to catch IllegalArgumentException.
