public class CertPathBuilderException
extends GeneralSecurityException

An exception indicating one of a variety of problems encountered when building a certification path with a CertPathBuilder.

A CertPathBuilderException provides support for wrapping exceptions. The getCause method returns the throwable, if any, that caused this exception to be thrown.

Concurrent Access

Constructor Detail

CertPathBuilderException

public CertPathBuilderException()
Creates a CertPathBuilderException with null as its detail message.


CertPathBuilderException

public CertPathBuilderException(String msg)
Creates a CertPathBuilderException with the given detail message. The detail message is a String that describes this particular exception in more detail.

Parameters:
msg - the detail message

CertPathBuilderException

public CertPathBuilderException(Throwable cause)
Creates a CertPathBuilderException that wraps the specified throwable. This allows any exception to be converted into a CertPathBuilderException, while retaining information about the wrapped exception, which may be useful for debugging. The detail message is set to (cause==null ? null : cause.toString() ) (which typically contains the class and detail message of cause).

Parameters:
cause - the cause (which is saved for later retrieval by the getCause() method). (A null value is permitted, and indicates that the cause is nonexistent or unknown.)

CertPathBuilderException

public CertPathBuilderException(String msg,
                                Throwable cause)
Creates a CertPathBuilderException with the specified detail message and cause.

Parameters:
msg - the detail message
cause - the cause (which is saved for later retrieval by the getCause() method). (A null value is permitted, and indicates that the cause is nonexistent or unknown.)
