    Install/modify apps in UEC images before bundling/upload

    http://uec-images.ubuntu.com/releases/

    I would like to install some applications in the UEC images before bundling and uploading them to the UEC Cloud.

    For example:

    installing java, vnc, codeblocks, etc. on "lucid-server-uec-amd64.img" which is in "ubuntu-10.04-server-uec-amd64.tar.gz" from "http://uec-images.ubuntu.com/releases/"

    Thank you for your help and support

    Here is what I found as a resource to all future requests to modify a base image.

    An alternate approach to rebundling images with your changes, is to use cloud-init or similar to dynamically configure an instance as it boots. This is the way I prefer. You can read more about cloud-init at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/CloudInit
