public class CertPathValidatorException
extends GeneralSecurityException

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 and the index of the certificate in the certification path that caused the exception to be thrown. Use the getCertPath and getIndex 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.

Constructor Detail

CertPathValidatorException

public CertPathValidatorException()
Creates a CertPathValidatorException with no detail message.


CertPathValidatorException

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

CertPathValidatorException

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.)

CertPathValidatorException

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.)

CertPathValidatorException

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
Method Detail

getMessage

public String getMessage()
Returns the detail message for this CertPathValidatorException.

Overrides:
getMessage in class Throwable
Returns:
the detail message, or null if neither the message nor cause were specified

getCertPath

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)

getIndex

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

getCause

public Throwable getCause()
Returns the cause of this CertPathValidatorException or null if the cause is nonexistent or unknown.

Overrides:
getCause in class Throwable
Returns:
the cause of this throwable or null if the cause is nonexistent or unknown.

toString

public String toString()
Returns a string describing this exception, including a description of the internal (wrapped) cause if there is one.

Overrides:
toString in class Throwable
Returns:
a string representation of this CertPathValidatorException

printStackTrace

public void printStackTrace()
Prints a stack trace to System.err, including the backtrace of the cause, if any.

Overrides:
printStackTrace in class Throwable

printStackTrace

public void printStackTrace(PrintStream ps)
Prints a stack trace to a PrintStream, including the backtrace of the cause, if any.

Overrides:
printStackTrace in class Throwable
Parameters:
ps - the PrintStream to use for output

printStackTrace

public void printStackTrace(PrintWriter pw)
Prints a stack trace to a PrintWriter, including the backtrace of the cause, if any.

Overrides:
printStackTrace in class Throwable
Parameters:
pw - the PrintWriter to use for output
