David is right in the sense of an actual instillation of CFengine on a web interface.
But you could always set up a virtual terminal and Exceed or a .swf file meant to simulate the actions of cfengine from the instillation to the compile, to the usage.
I don't know if that will help your cause or not, but it might be one solution.

Wow!  I don't think this is possible.  There is too much environmental information that cfagent is looking for to make it's decisions about what to do.  What is wrong with installing cfengine on the system and then doing a --dry-run to see what it would do?

    I'd like to create a web page where one could select classes and then click submit to see what cfengine would do on a machine where such classes are defined. The aim is to see what cfengine would do on a certain machine before installing cfengine on it ... This script would run on a totally different architecture and OS machine.
    I was thinking about running cfagent -n -H -v -Dredhat7 on a solaris machine (my policyhost) to see what would happen on a redhat 7 machine without installing cfengine on it ... but unfortunately cfagent do not want me to define Hard Classes like redhat7 using the -D flag ....
    Do you have an idea of what I could do ?
