/**
 * A class for validating 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>CertPathValidator</code>, 
 * call one of the static <code>getInstance</code> methods, passing in the 
 * algorithm name of the <code>CertPathValidator</code> desired and 
 * optionally the name of the provider desired. <br />
 * <br />
 * Once a <code>CertPathValidator</code> object has been created, it can
 * be used to validate certification paths by calling the {@link #validate
 * validate} method and passing it the <code>CertPath</code> to be validated
 * and an algorithm-specific set of parameters. If successful, the result is
 * returned in an object that implements the 
 * <code>CertPathValidatorResult</code> interface.<br />
 * <br />
 * <b>Concurrent Access</b><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>CertPathValidator</code> instance concurrently should
 * synchronize amongst themselves and provide the necessary locking. Multiple
 * threads each manipulating a different <code>CertPathValidator</code>
 * instance need not synchronize.<br />
 * <br />
