How can I create an image (.iso) that contains: 1. Base Ubuntu OS 2. Java, CXF + some more software

I want these bundled as one VMPlayer image. How can I do this ?

I don't get your question to be honest. Could you clarify it more please? – Saifallah Dec 3 '10 at 17:29
Your question is confusion, there is no purpose on creating an iso if your deployment method is a VM image, unless you want to deploy a readonly VM, is that the point ? – João Pinto Dec 3 '10 at 17:33
@above, imagine a situation where you are traveling to a customer site for showing your product. An OS image with the product and the simulators on a USB is all you need to run via VMPlayer and test live. There are other uses also of a customized OS image – Ved Dec 3 '10 at 18:10
Call me stupid but that made your question worse. – Saifallah Dec 3 '10 at 18:15

This wiki will help you to customize the Ubuntu ISO :

Alternatively you can install Ubuntu in Vmware. Then after installing all required s/w you can export this Guest os to an VMPlayer image.

reference :

Hope this helps.
