public class PKIXCertPathBuilderResult extends PKIXCertPathValidatorResult implements CertPathBuilderResultThis 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.
PKIXCertPathBuilderResultare returned by the
CertPathBuilderobjects implementing the PKIX algorithm.
PKIXCertPathBuilderResultobjects contain the certification path constructed by the build algorithm, the valid policy tree and subject public key resulting from the build algorithm, and a
TrustAnchordescribing 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.

public CertPath getCertPath()Returns the built and validated certification path. The
CertPathobject does not include the trust anchor. Instead, use the
getTrustAnchor()method to obtain the
TrustAnchorthat served as the trust anchor for the certification path.
