objects follow contour of other object?

is it possible to have one object constrained to the shape of another object.

for instance I want a cube sitting on top of a bigger sphere i want to animate the cube in z but the cube need to follow the curve of the cube?

I hope that makes sense. thanks in advance

[Animation] Constrain->Geometry and [Animation] Constrain->Normal do that for you. Select the target surface, then the object you want to constrain, then run the two commands.

Thank you so much, for the speedy and helpful response.

constrain normal is the one, it's a perfect simple and elegant solution to my projects issue.

thank you
