public abstract class CertPathValidatorSpi extends Object

The Service Provider Interface (SPI) for the CertPathValidator class. All CertPathValidator implementations must include a class (the SPI class) that extends this class (CertPathValidatorSpi) and implements all of its methods. In general, instances of this class should only be accessed through the CertPathValidator class. For details, see the Java Cryptography Architecture.

Concurrent Access

Instances of this class need not be protected against concurrent access from multiple threads. Threads that need to access a single CertPathValidatorSpi instance concurrently should synchronize amongst themselves and provide the necessary locking before calling the wrapping CertPathValidator object.

However, implementations of CertPathValidatorSpi may still encounter concurrency issues, since multiple threads each manipulating a different CertPathValidatorSpi instance need not synchronize.
