public CertPathValidatorParameters(String realmName,
                                   X509Certificate[] trustedCAs,
                                   ContextHandler context)
Construct a CertPathValidatorParameters. You must provide realmName.

You can provide a list of trusted certificate authorities (CAs) for use when validating the certification path. If trustedCAs is null, the default set of trusted CAs configured for the server is used.

You can also provide a ContextHandler object containing extra parameters for use when validating the certification path. Setting context to null indicates that there are no context parameters.

realmName - The name of the security realm (for example, myrealm)
trustedCAs - Optional list of trusted certificate authorities
context - Optional additional certification-path validation parameters
IllegalArgumentException - if realmName is null or empty
