CP repository

This component stores all CP classes that can be instantiated by an interagent. Such repository can be updated in either statically or dynamically, e.g. in FM only the market intermediaries working for the institution, the auction house, can define, and store at run-time new CP classes into the CP repository of each interagent. Notice that the conversation protocol repository can either be owned by only one interagent or shared among several interagents.
