Setting up an OpenCV web application

Since this chapter covers the development of a web application using Java OpenCV, it is important to address a couple of differences when going to the server side. The first thing is to tell the web container, generally Tomcat, Jetty, JBoss, or Websphere, about the location of native libraries. Other details deal with loading the native code. This should happen as soon as the web server goes up and should not occur again.

The advantages of using the web architecture are significant. As certain image-processing tasks are compute intensive, they could easily drain the device's battery in no time, so, taking them to a more robust hardware on the cloud would relieve local processing. Besides that, there's no need for users to install anything more than the web browser, and the updates happening on the server side are also very handy.

On the other hand, there are a few drawbacks. If, instead of hosting the web application on the administrator infrastructure...
