In both the 2.4.1 and 3.1.0 version I dowloaded(directly from the website), the build folder was missing. In all openCV with java and eclipse tutorials, they tell me I need to get the jars from the build folder. But there is no build folder. I have the following folders: 3rdparty , apps, cmake, doc , data, include, modules, platforms, samples

I do need a build folder, right?? For a side note, I'm using eclipse mars, on ubuntu 14.04.

I have another interesting question. When i was trying to install openCV with eclipse CDT, in all the tutorials I did, in the end, no executable was made in the Release folder. (after 3 weeks of trying). I think it is a build issue, and now that I see the build folder missing from openCV, would that have anything do with this?

if you got the src from github, you will have to build the opencv libraries from src using cmake.

I downloaded both versions directly from the site.

I did that tutorial as well. Same problem, they need to get the jars from a build folder I don't have. Which means the build folder wasn't part of the download package?

im sorry, could you perhaps link me to the build tutorial so I know for sure I'm reading the right one?
