In the context of the TIMS 1 project, a rapid-prototyping environment for TMN-systems is under development. The information modeling falicility is based on a fully object oriented framework (GDMO / ASN.1 support) extended with relationships (GRM support). Managed Object behaviors are specified thanks to the Behavior Language (BL), which enables both imperative and declarative specifications, in the context of relationships. Hints are given to show how policy objects and the so-called management policy scripts could be realized thanks to the provided information modeling facilities along with the BL. Finally, various semantics for the BL are described. Some of them constitute true behavioral simulation and analysis tools, which should reveal very useful in the context of detecting management policy conflicts.
