Sure, why not. Just include a JRE on the CD and be sure that when you invoke your application, that you set the classpath to point at the JRE on the CD.
However, you might have to be deal with the problem, that not everyones CD is on the same drive. Here my CD in on the E: drive. At home my CD is on the G: drive. So you are going to need to have someway of changing that drive in the classpath parameter in the .bat file or script that you use to fire up your application.
