As the agents in a TMN system are constructed based on different platform, there are some problems in development, maintenance & administration of class in distributed object (DO). To solve these problems, this paper suggests Farming methodology, which originated from network computing concept. With the methodology, the redundant software and data components in the distributed objects are moved to platform independent class repository (PICR) in the form of componentware. When the PICR is constructed, several aspects of TMN are considered. After setting up the framework of DO, some small componentwares are loaded dynamically to DO, while others are loaded statically. DO's can do self-adapt componentware for the evolution of network environment while the TMN system is running.
