I have a bit of experience with Android development using Java. Now I want to try porting some C/C++ code that uses OpenCV to Android. First, I tried to build the OpenCV lib and samples for Android using Eclipse on a Win-7 64-bit machine.

I've installed Java 7 JDK, Cygwin, Eclipse, NDK and CDK (or at least I think I have). When I try building the project, I get these 2 errors:

  1. The import org.opencv.R cannot be resolved
  2. The import org.opencv.engine.OpenCVEngineInterface cannot be resolved

I noticed that there is a OpenCVEngineInterface.aidl file that is supposed to get converted to .java but I don't think it's happening

Also, when I try to do Android Tools -> Fix Project Properties, nothing happens: no window is opened etc. Maybe my dev environment is not set up correctly?

What should I do to get these resolved and to build the project?

Also, I do not currently have an actual Android device to test the code on. Can I run the samples in the emulator?

Thank you!

UPDATE: When I select Project -> Clean -> Clean all projects a window pops up with the message Cleaning all projects has encountered an error and Errors occurred during the build. Errors running builder 'Android Package Builder' on project 'OpenCV Library -'. Resource '/OpenCV Library -' does not exist. Resource '/OpenCV Library -' does not exist.

I created bin in my workspace\OpenCV Library - but that did not help. After I proceed with the rebuild, I get this message in COnsole:

This warning is ok. It is produced by file. We are working on its improvement, so, it'll be fixed in future releases.

org.opencv.R and org.opencv.engine.OpenCVEngineInterface are auto generated classes. Eclipse or ant must generate it for you at build time. They are located in OpenCV library project. You need to build the library project first. Check for library project build errors. Possible you need to install Android SDK libraries for the target API level.
