JavaTM 2 Platform Std. Ed. v1.4.2
- All Implemented Interfaces:
- CertPathBuilderResult, CertPathValidatorResult, Cloneable
- public class PKIXCertPathBuilderResult
- extends PKIXCertPathValidatorResult
- implements CertPathBuilderResult
This class represents the successful result of the PKIX certification
path builder algorithm. All certification paths that are built and
returned using this algorithm are also validated according to the PKIX
certification path validation algorithm.
PKIXCertPathBuilderResult are returned by
build method of
objects implementing the PKIX algorithm.
PKIXCertPathBuilderResult objects contain the
certification path constructed by the build algorithm, the
valid policy tree and subject public key resulting from the build
algorithm, and a
TrustAnchor describing the certification
authority (CA) that served as a trust anchor for the certification path.
Unless otherwise specified, the methods defined in this class are not
thread-safe. Multiple threads that need to access a single
object concurrently should synchronize amongst themselves and
provide the necessary locking. Multiple threads each manipulating
separate objects need not synchronize.
