You have to do this (Step by Step explanation):
1.) Start eclipse, open new Project
2.) right click project, go into "properties"
3.) go into "Java Build path", click add external jars
4.) go into the folder where your jar is placed, "open"
5.) select the newly added jar and expand its "plus-sign"
6.) select "Native library location" and click edit
7.) here select the location where you have stored your c++ dll

If you do not know where your c++ dll and your jar file is:
-download openCV
-unpack it go into folder "build/java" (you will see opencv-245.jar)
-go into "build/java/x86" (you will see your dll)

the link lacks the step with "Native library location" and "add c++ dll", it also confused me when starting to program openCV in java.

@StevenPuttemans I started working on it. It is very labor intensive to write and even modify a tutorial, so it will take time to make it into the repo.
