/**
 * A class for building certification paths (also known as certificate chains).<br />
 * <br />
 * This class uses a provider-based architecture, as described in the Java
 * Cryptography Architecture. To create a <code>CertPathBuilder</code>, call
 * one of the static <code>getInstance</code> methods, passing in the
 * algorithm name of the CertPathBuilder desired and optionally the name of the
 * provider desired.<br />
 * <br />
 * Once a <code>CertPathBuilder</code> object has been created, certification
 * paths can be constructed by calling the {@link #build build} method and
 * passing it an algorithm-specific set of parameters. If successful, the result
 * (including the CertPath that was built) is returned in an object that
 * implements the <code>CertPathBuilderResult</code> interface.<br />
 * <br />
 * <strong>Concurrent Access</strong><br />
 * <br />
 * The static methods of this class are guaranteed to be thread-safe. Multiple
 * threads may concurrently invoke the static methods defined in this class with
 * no ill effects.<br />
 * <br />
 * However, this is not true for the non-static methods defined by this class.
 * Unless otherwise documented by a specific provider, threads that need to
 * access a single <code>CertPathBuilder</code> instance concurrently should
 * synchronize amongst themselves and provide the necessary locking. Multiple
 * threads each manipulating a different <code>CertPathBuilder</code> instance
 * need not synchronize.<br />
 * <br />
