Hello, all (and in particular the developer(s) for Java binding)

There seems to be a few questions related to using FaceRecognizer in either Desktop Java or Android environment, but I didn't see any definitive answers for it: is it simply missing or not implemented, or any plan for it? Another twist here is: the contrib/FaceRecognizer the abstract class is there, you just can't create any Eigen/Fisher/LBH recognizer.

Does any OCV developer read and help in the forum? It seems there is another Yahoo Group on OCV that is also active. I am actually confused on where and how exactly get this kind of question clarified.

Thanks for help.

short of an answer, but at least someone made an issue already.

"factory" methods for the other recognizers would have to be devised in a similar manner.

but it seems, they're all waiting for the one person, who does the actual job, that is:

  • extend the generator script
  • test, if cmake does the right job, does it compile, etc.
  • submit a pull request to github master. (once that is done, changes are in within a day or so)

this is certainly very helpful, I appreciate it.

I'll look into it next week and see what I can do.

Has this issue been resolved? I can't find the binding for the specific recognisers.

@ales, in short, no.

the create*FaceRecognizer native functions are still missing ( as well as their java counterparts ).

but yes, you can work around using jni.
