Telecommunication Management Network (TMN) system has been researched for the management of several networks with more efficiency and generality. As TMN system is implemented depending on different hardware and operating system, there are some problems in development, maintenance & administration of classes in agent. One of the main problems is that all the agents of the TMN system must be duplicated and maintain the software and the data blocks that perform the identical function. Therefore, the standard of the Q3 interface development cannot be defined and the multi-platform cannot be supported in the development of the TMN agent. In order to overcome these problems, the Farming methodology that is based on the EA model has been suggested. With the methodology, the redundant software and data components in the distributed objects are moved to platform independent class repository in the form of componentware. After setting up the framework of DO, some small componentwares are loaded dynamically to DO, while others are loaded statically.
