getting runtime error in java

Master Collaborator

I am following the popular DetectFaceDemo tutorial but I cant seem to run the packaged jar . [DetectFaceDemo](http://docs.opencv.org/2.4/doc/tutorials/introduction/desktop_java/java_dev_intro.html)

I have placed the following files in their respect directories as shown below :

    [root@hadoop1 java]# pwd
    /root/openCV/opencv/samples/java/sbt/src/main/java
    [root@hadoop1 java]#
    [root@hadoop1 java]# ls
    build.sbt  DetectFaceDemo.java.orig  HelloOpenCV.java  lib  project  target
    [root@hadoop1 java]#
    [root@hadoop1 java]# ls  lib
    libopencv_java249.so  opencv-249.jar
    [root@hadoop1 java]#
    [root@hadoop1 java]# cd ..
    [root@hadoop1 main]# pwd
    /root/openCV/opencv/samples/java/sbt/src/main
    [root@hadoop1 main]# ls
    java  origscala  resources
    [root@hadoop1 main]# ls resources
    AverageMaleFace.jpg  img1.png  img2.png  lbpcascade_frontalface.xml  lena.png
    [root@hadoop1 main]#

I am getting error when I run the jar , I have a feeling the code is not picking up the image and the xml file from the src/main/resources folder ? I have though provided the absolute path to the resource folder.

    [root@hadoop1 java]# sbt run

found the solution online

put the following in the code to find the classpath and copy the "xml" and "png" files to this location . System.out.println(System.getProperty("java.class.path"));

Re: getting runtime error in java

@Sami Ahmad

The NullPointerException seems to be coming from the following line 20 which is the following in your code:

CascadeClassifier faceDetector = new CascadeClassifier(getClass().getResource("/root/openCV/opencv/samples/java/sbt/src/main/resources/lbpcascade_frontalface.xml").getPath());

I am suspecting that you might not have placed the file in that location with proper read/write permission.

As the code is using "getClass().getResource(...)" method approach here so it means the class should be present relative to your "HelloOpenCV.class" directory. So please place the XML file "lbpcascade_frontalface.xml" in the same directory where you have the "HelloOpenCV.class" and then change the code to give the relative path:

CascadeClassifier faceDetector = new CascadeClassifier(getClass().getResource("lbpcascade_frontalface.xml").getPath());

Re: getting runtime error in java

@Sami Ahmad

By default the current directory (where the *.class is present) is already added to the classpath. So do not need to worry about it. The only change you need in your case is to

1. Make sure that the "HelloOpenCV.class" and "lbpcascade_frontalface.xml" are colocated with following code.

CascadeClassifier faceDetector = newCascadeClassifier(getClass().getResource("lbpcascade_frontalface.xml").getPath());

OR

2. You should create a JAR where the "HelloOpenCV.class" and "lbpcascade_frontalface.xml" both are present. and then you can use the same code:

CascadeClassifier faceDetector = newCascadeClassifier(getClass().getResource("lbpcascade_frontalface.xml").getPath());
