We present an algorithm that allows to cut a component from a component based system and transplant it into a mobile agent system. We refer to this process as grafting. The overall goal is to run grafted components in a new execution environment. The approach is generic as it brings the target system into a position to execute any instance of the grafted component type. Moreover it applies for any two systems, not only for component based and agent systems. The approach was tested by grafting OSGi bundles into the mobile agent system SEMOA.
