Class Overview

An exception indicating one of a variety of problems encountered when validating a certification path.

A CertPathValidatorException provides support for wrapping exceptions. The getCause method returns the throwable, if any, that caused this exception to be thrown.

A CertPathValidatorException may also include the certification path that was being validated when the exception was thrown, the index of the certificate in the certification path that caused the exception to be thrown, and the reason that caused the failure. Use the getCertPath, getIndex, and getReason methods to retrieve this information.

Concurrent Access

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.

Summary

Nested Classes
enum CertPathValidatorException.BasicReason The BasicReason enumerates the potential reasons that a certification path of any type may be invalid. 
interface CertPathValidatorException.Reason The reason the validation algorithm failed. 
Public Constructors
CertPathValidatorException()
Creates a CertPathValidatorException with no detail message.
CertPathValidatorException(String msg)
Creates a CertPathValidatorException with the given detail message.
CertPathValidatorException(Throwable cause)
Creates a CertPathValidatorException that wraps the specified throwable.
CertPathValidatorException(String msg, Throwable cause)
Creates a CertPathValidatorException with the specified detail message and cause.
CertPathValidatorException(String msg, Throwable cause, CertPath certPath, int index)
Creates a CertPathValidatorException with the specified detail message, cause, certification path, and index.
CertPathValidatorException(String msg, Throwable cause, CertPath certPath, int index, CertPathValidatorException.Reason reason)
Creates a CertPathValidatorException with the specified detail message, cause, certification path, index, and reason.
Public Methods
CertPath getCertPath()
Returns the certification path that was being validated when the exception was thrown.
int getIndex()
Returns the index of the certificate in the certification path that caused the exception to be thrown.
CertPathValidatorException.Reason getReason()
Returns the reason that the validation failed.

Public Constructors

public CertPathValidatorException ()

Creates a CertPathValidatorException with no detail message.

public CertPathValidatorException (String msg)

Creates a CertPathValidatorException with the given detail message. A detail message is a String that describes this particular exception.

Parameters
msg the detail message

public CertPathValidatorException (Throwable cause)

Creates a CertPathValidatorException that wraps the specified throwable. This allows any exception to be converted into a CertPathValidatorException, while retaining information about the wrapped exception, which may be useful for debugging. The detail message is set to (cause==null ? null : cause.toString()) (which typically contains the class and detail message of cause).

Parameters
cause the cause (which is saved for later retrieval by the getCause() method). (A null value is permitted, and indicates that the cause is nonexistent or unknown.)

public CertPathValidatorException (String msg, Throwable cause)

Creates a CertPathValidatorException with the specified detail message and cause.

Parameters
msg the detail message
cause the cause (which is saved for later retrieval by the getCause() method). (A null value is permitted, and indicates that the cause is nonexistent or unknown.)

public CertPathValidatorException (String msg, Throwable cause, CertPath certPath, int index)

Creates a CertPathValidatorException with the specified detail message, cause, certification path, and index.

Parameters
msg the detail message (or null if none)
cause the cause (or null if none)
certPath the certification path that was in the process of being validated when the error was encountered
index the index of the certificate in the certification path that caused the error (or -1 if not applicable). Note that the list of certificates in a CertPath is zero based.
Throws
IndexOutOfBoundsException if the index is out of range (index < -1 || (certPath != null && index >= certPath.getCertificates().size())
IllegalArgumentException if certPath is null and index is not -1

public CertPathValidatorException (String msg, Throwable cause, CertPath certPath, int index, CertPathValidatorException.Reason reason)

Creates a CertPathValidatorException with the specified detail message, cause, certification path, index, and reason.

Parameters
msg the detail message (or null if none)
cause the cause (or null if none)
certPath the certification path that was in the process of being validated when the error was encountered
index the index of the certificate in the certification path that caused the error (or -1 if not applicable). Note that the list of certificates in a CertPath is zero based.
reason the reason the validation failed
Throws
IndexOutOfBoundsException if the index is out of range (index < -1 || (certPath != null && index >= certPath.getCertificates().size())
IllegalArgumentException if certPath is null and index is not -1
NullPointerException if reason is null

Public Methods

public CertPath getCertPath ()

Returns the certification path that was being validated when the exception was thrown.

Returns
  • the CertPath that was being validated when the exception was thrown (or null if not specified)

public int getIndex ()

Returns the index of the certificate in the certification path that caused the exception to be thrown. Note that the list of certificates in a CertPath is zero based. If no index has been set, -1 is returned.

Returns
  • the index that has been set, or -1 if none has been set

public CertPathValidatorException.Reason getReason ()

Returns the reason that the validation failed. The reason is associated with the index of the certificate returned by getIndex().

Returns
  • the reason that the validation failed, or BasicReason.UNSPECIFIED if a reason has not been specified
