At the early stage of Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) research, most studies focused on routing protocols to support communications among mobile nodes connected to each other by one-hop/multi-hop links. However, in many MANET applications, mobile nodes share data with each other and access data held by other mobile nodes. Typical examples are collaborative rescue operations at a disaster site, military operations, sensor networks, and exchange of word-of-mouth information in a shopping mall. For such applications, preventing the deterioration of data availability at the point of network partitioning is a very significant issue.
