This paper proposes a framework for adapting software components for a disaggregated system, which dynamically composes devices, e.g., displays, keyboard, and mice, which do not attached to the same computer into a virtual computer over a distributed system, including ubiquitous/pervasive computing systems. It introduces the notions of differentiation and dedifferentiation in cellular slime molds into real distributed systems, including disaggregated systems. When software components delegates a function to another component coordinating with it, if the former has the function, this function becomes less-developed and the latter's function becomes well-developed. The framework was constructed as a middleware system and allowed us to define agents as Java objects written in JavaBean. We present several evaluations of the framework in a distributed system instead of any simulation-based systems and describes a practical application.
