Hi,

I plan to write a struts2 application.

I want to write a digital library. I plan to store audio and video. So whats the best way to do this? I want the content (audio and video) to be access controlled.

So, I have following questions:
- - What is the best way to store the content (audio and video)? Do i just store them on filesystem? store them in DB as BLOB?
- - do I encrypt the BLOB before storing and decrypt after retrival?
- - Any other way to do this?
- - Any other considerations?

Please suggest some ideas/ways if you have already done something like this?

I would store in a folder.
Just store the files from outside the web application context, so you will be able to control the access.
