In this paper, the authors present a middleware architecture for a mobile peer-to-peer content distribution system. Their architecture allows wireless content dissemination between mobile nodes without relying on infrastructure support. Contents are exchanged opportunistically when nodes are within communication range. Applications access the service of their platform through a publish/subscribe interface and therefore do not have to deal with low-level opportunistic networking issues or matching and soliciting of contents. Their architecture consists of three key components. A content structure that facilitates dividing contents into logical topics and allows for efficient matching of content lookups and downloading under sporadic node connectivity.
