Run JRE from CD?

I am distributing a java application via cd with JRE 1.4 also on the cd. Is is possible to run the application from CD without the user having to install the JRE onto their system(just have the program use the JRE on the cd?). My goal is to have a program that autostarts when the cd is inserted without the need to install the JRE. Its for windows only.

I did it back in the JRE 1.1 days. CD's are cheap. Create a simple app that just displays a JFrame, create an autorun CD and try it out!
