Automated VM Deployment with vSwitch

I have a virtual appliance that when deployed needs to create it's own vSwitch and attach itself to it.

In other words, I'm looking for an dynamic way for a VM to be deployed into an ESXi enviornment and have a vSwitch created on deployment.

Is there any OVF property that would allow for this?

Ideally I would like a vSphere Client user to import an OVA that would build the VM with all it's properties as well as create a vSwitch; however based on my research of OVF properties I'm not sure if this is possible.

If it isn't possible what other options do I have?
