I suggest that you play around (though I have not done so myself)
with Sun's new Jini system for Java. It is certainly no AI, but
does have the basics needed for components to find each other in
a "software soup" and adapt to each other. It is small enough
that this exercise shouldn't take you too long.
Personally, I prefer to hide as much of the underlying system as
possible behind abstractions so that the application will run
exactly the same on different systems instead of including ways
to decide if it should use the cybernetic information formatter
for user IO or a monochrome LCD with a touch screen.
