/**
 * 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 />
 * Uses {@link CertUtil CertUtil} to actualiy load the SPI classes.
