In P2P environments, like file sharing methods in Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) can be classified into three groups: flooding-based, advertisement-based and social contact-based. The first two groups of methods can easily have high overhead and low scalability. So the authors' concern on third methods adapts to the opportunistic nature of disconnected MANETs, which can be exploited to improve the file searching efficiency. In this paper, and by propose a P2P content-based file sharing system, namely spoon for disconnected MANETs.
