/**
 * This class represents the successful result of the PKIX certification 
 * path validation algorithm. <br />
 * <br />
 * Instances of <code>PKIXCertPathValidatorResult</code> are returned by the 
 * {@link CertPathValidator#validate validate} method of 
 * <code>CertPathValidator</code> objects implementing the PKIX algorithm.<br />
 * <br />
 * All <code>PKIXCertPathValidatorResult</code> objects contain the 
 * valid policy tree and subject public key resulting from the 
 * validation algorithm, as well as a <code>TrustAnchor</code> describing
 * the certification authority (CA) that served as a trust anchor for the 
 * certification path.<br />
 * <br />
 * <b>Concurrent Access</b><br />
 * <br />
 * 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.
