Hi, I use openCv 3.0 from java. I am getting error when call detectMultiscale method.

# A fatal error has been detected by the Java Runtime Environment:

this code crashes jvm in 5 seconds

for (int i = 0; i < 500; ++i) {
    Thread t = new Thread(new Runnable() {
        public void run() {

            CascadeClassifier faceDetector = new CascadeClassifier(CLASSIFIER_FACE);
            MatOfRect faceDetections = new MatOfRect();
            Mat uncroppedImage = Imgcodecs.imread(tmpFile.getAbsolutePath());

Please add some code. Otherwise:

  • The Java code works without the call detectMultiScale ?
  • The classifier has correctly loaded the classifier data ?

you're re-loading the classifier and the image 500 times ? i guess, you're just running out of memory this way.

try to release() anything at the end of your run() function. java's gc does not know about any memory allocated internally from native c++ functions

I've also had this error a couple of times. I suspect it arises when the classifier is recreated at every iteration. Try placing CascadeClassifier faceDetector = new CascadeClassifier(CLASSIFIER_FACE); outside the for-loop and see if this solves the issue.

Let me know if it helped!

I've seen this with building from master branch, Try source another day or try 3.0.0 release tag. Also, try another method signature and see if the same thing happens.
