Need direction

I'm looking for some direction.

I'd like to make a quiz, that runs on my cold fusion server,  available to other web sites, probably via an iframe.

What approach should I take?

I guess this has less to do with coldfusion and more with the integration of two apps right?

if you want to host a single quiz and make it available on other websites, first you should make a web form (html/coldfusion) that submits data on your or other database or other data storing solutions such as xml/text files. then make a sample static html page that has an iFrame that loads your quiz form file. then give other web sites the iframe code that they can put in their website. use your static sample page as a guide for them.

I was assuming this would have to be some sort of web service, but maybe I'm making it to complicated.

Maybe it is nothing more than giving other web sites a sample HTML page with the iframe set up in it?

I've not used iframes before, so I will try that and see what the limitations are.

If you make it a web service, the company you provide your quizes to will need to do some coding.  You probably don't want that.

If you make it an iFrame, then you just link the iFrame to your website and it works just as though it were running on your website (because it is).

Thx gdemaria,
