The CASPARKey Components Implementation



One important consideration is the preservability of the infrastructure components (Fig. 17.1) themselves. The approach taken by CASPAR was not to use recursion and say that one would use CASPAR to preserve the components. Instead the approach was to make the components relatively easy to re-implement. Thus in the rest of this chapter we provide more details of the components and then give the interface definitions.
