following the tutorial and writing in eclipse

import org.opencv.core.CvType;
import org.opencv.core.Mat;
public class Main {
    public static void main(String[] args) {
          Mat m = Mat.eye(3, 3, CvType.CV_8UC1);
          System.out.println("m = " + m.dump());

I get

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.UnsatisfiedLinkError: no opencv_java244in java.library.path
    at java.lang.ClassLoader.loadLibrary(
    at java.lang.Runtime.loadLibrary0(
    at java.lang.System.loadLibrary(
    at Main.main(

make sure you use tha latest tutorial (updated on February 28) and the 2.4.4 release package (not beta that contained bugs).

Make sure you setup reference to the native lib folder correctly.

Also specify your OS for further suggestions.

My OS is ubuntu 13.04 ok I solved with the right LIB PATH and the sample program load right the opencv version but Mat m = Mat.eye(4, 4, CvType.CV_32F); lead to Unsupported major.minor version 51.0 why?

@fferrieu, I still with the same problem. My .jar files are in /build/bin and my native .so are in /build/lib. But even with this paths set correctly on eclipse, the problem persists; Wich was the correct JAVA_HOME that you say, and how did you set it?

Hi , Andrey.

I don´t know if i´m right, but i had same problem and i resolved with:

In Library on Eclipse, i add opencv-244.jar , this erro happened, so , i click on edit and set Native library location: x86 inside /build/java.

For me this resolved this problem !

I had this same problem. Try if you use corresponding OpenCV version. It must be equal to opencv_java244. If you are using 2.4.6 try with 'opencv_java246' etc ;)

Hope this helps Jan

This really did solve my problem, probably something we wouldn't really notice. Good catch
