5/8 or 3/4 plywood on top of the framing and then cement board would work fine. Then you can apply a surface membrane on top of that.

Once the plywood is installed, you might want to drop the tub in place and figure out where you want the valves to go. Mark and drill them out. I have drilled the holes after the tile is set, drilling thru the tile CBU and plywood all at once. Either way works.

Some tubs don't sit level, even when they are sitting on a level floor. Making the deck level and setting the tub on top is the easiest way to go.

I don't know about the glass, or if that will work or not. Even if you get it to work, stepping up into a tub like that to shower will get old real fast in my opinion. Actually, most folks that have those tubs very seldom use them.
