Analysis of Content Repository Requirements in a Peer–to–Peer Case
The previous chapter presented in substance the wider scope of a content repository and the peer–to–peer (P2P) computing paradigm. However, before turning towards the applicability of P2P technology for content repository systems, their inherent peculiarity needs to be analysed. The functions of the identified essential building blocks (or functional components) that constitute and distinguish a content repository from a user’s point of view need to be defined, on the one hand. On the other hand, functional and non-functional requirements regarding the applicability of different P2P overlay approaches need to be investigated. The methodology used in the analysis is explained in Section 3.1.
