it wouldn't be JAVA without JVM, it would be rather 'Java application bundled with JVM' :)
and thats what many people are doing today! use any of the installers available in the market and bundle the JDK/JVM req'd for your app with it.. the only catch over here is: now you'll need to provide a separate installer per OS/Platform, as you need a separate JVM per OS/Platform. People still considers this as a good choice as this approach lets you deliver your app for the end user having no knowledge of how a Java app works. the only thing we really do - which is not W.O.R.A. - is the installer for that OS..
W.O.R.A - Write Once Run Anywhere
