Dependency Analysis

When you create an app package, MATLAB® analyzes your main file and attempts to include all the MATLAB files that it uses in the app package. However, MATLAB does not guarantee to find every dependent file. MATLAB will not find files for functions that your code references as strings (for instance, as arguments to eval, feval, and callback functions). In addition, MATLAB might include some files that the main file never calls when it runs.

Dependency analysis searches for executable files, such as:

  • MATLAB files

  • P-files

  • .fig files

  • MEX-files

Dependency analysis does not search for data, image, or other binary files, such as Java® classes and .jar files. You must manually add such files when you package your app. The Package Apps dialog box provides an option for doing this.
