Interface CertPathBuilderResult

All Superinterfaces:
Cloneable
All Known Implementing Classes:
PKIXCertPathBuilderResult

public interface CertPathBuilderResult
extends Cloneable

A specification of the result of a certification path builder algorithm. All results returned by the CertPathBuilder.build method must implement this interface.

At a minimum, a CertPathBuilderResult contains the CertPath built by the CertPathBuilder instance. Implementations of this interface may add methods to return implementation or algorithm specific information, such as debugging information or certification path validation results.

Concurrent Access

Unless otherwise specified, the methods defined in this interface 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.
