Update the relevant ProtectionDomains with the Principals from the Subject associated with this SubjectDomainCombiner.

A new ProtectionDomain instance is created for each ProtectionDomain in the currentDomains array.

All of the newly instantiated ProtectionDomains are combined into a new array. The ProtectionDomains from the assignedDomains array are appended to this new array, and the result is returned.

This parameter may be null if the current execution Thread has no associated ProtectionDomains.

assignedDomains - the ProtectionDomains inherited from the parent Thread, or the ProtectionDomains from the privileged context, if a call to AccessController.doPrivileged(..., context) had occurred This parameter may be null if there were no ProtectionDomains inherited from the parent Thread, or from the privileged context.
Returns:
