public final class SSLValidationConstants extends java.lang.Object
SSL performs some built-in validation before it calls one or more CertPathValidator objects to perform additional validation. A validator can reduce the amount of validation it must do by discovering what validation has already been done.
For example, the WebLogic CertPath Provider performs the same Certicom validation that SSL does, and there is no need to duplicate that validation when invoked by SSL. Therefore, SSL puts some information into the context it hands to the validators to indicate what validation has already occurred.
For more information, see the sections that describe certification paths in "Developing Security Providers for WebLogic Server."
