CertPathBuilderResult.java

package org.bouncycastle.jce.cert;

/**
 * A specification of the result of a certification path builder algorithm.
 * All results returned by the {@link CertPathBuilder#build CertPathBuilder.build} method
 * must implement this interface.<br />
 * <br />
 * 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.<br />
 * <br />
 * <strong>Concurrent Access</strong><br />
 * <br />
 * 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.
