I’ve been playing with the polling application included in DRK4, you can see an example of this on the left side of my blog page. Pollster comes with a ColdFusion administrator tool used to define polls (the question, what the answers are, etc.) as well as to report or show responses. After you have filled in the form, the administrator tool generates the appropriate code to embed the Flash movie into your page, you just copy and paste, and you are done. Data is returned to ColdFusion via Flash Remoting and stored in a database. Quick, painless, and quite useful – my only criticism is that this first version only supports 5 answers, hopefully that will be fixed in a future update. DRK4 info is at http://www.macromedia.com/software/drk/productinfo/product_overview/volume4/.
