how to implement neural network using opencv and java

I have to do a project that recognize images using opencv machine learning. I should try many methods. I tried KNN and SVM but i don't know how to implement ANN. Can someone help me? This is the KNN example

public   void train() {

        // Creating Training Data
         Mat trainData = new Mat();
         Mat train_labels = new Mat();

            for (int i = 0; i <6; i++) {

                String path = Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory().toString()
                        + "/Pictures/images/" + i + ".jpg";

                Mat img = Imgcodecs.imread(path);


                img.convertTo(img, CvType.CV_32FC1); // Convert to float
                Size dsize = new Size(25, 25);
                Imgproc.resize(img, img, dsize);

                img.convertTo(img, CvType.CV_32FC1);
                Mat imgResized = img.reshape(1, 1); // make continuous

                // add 1 item
                        .push_back(new Mat(1, 1, CvType.CV_32SC1, new Scalar(i)));


            Mat response = new Mat();
            Mat tmp;
            tmp = train_labels.reshape(1, 1); // make continuous
            tmp.convertTo(response, CvType.CV_32FC1); // Convert to float
            KNearest knn = KNearest.create();
            knn.train(trainData, Ml.ROW_SAMPLE, train_labels);

            // For Storing training data

            String path = Environment.getExternalStoragePublicDirectory(

            Bitmap bmpOut1 = Bitmap.createBitmap(trainData.cols(),
                    trainData.rows(), Bitmap.Config.ARGB_8888);
            Bitmap bmpOut2 = Bitmap.createBitmap(response.cols(), response.rows(),

            trainData.convertTo(trainData, CvType.CV_8UC1);

            Utils.matToBitmap(trainData, bmpOut1);
            Utils.matToBitmap(response, bmpOut2);
            // File file = new File(path);
            // file.mkdirs();
            File file = new File(path, "train.png");
            File file2 = new File(path, "response.png");

            OutputStream fout = null;
            OutputStream fout2 = null;

            try {
                fout = new FileOutputStream(file);
                fout2 = new FileOutputStream(file2);

                BufferedOutputStream bos = new BufferedOutputStream(fout);
                BufferedOutputStream bos2 = new BufferedOutputStream(fout2);
