TestCase
%TestCase Class defining interface for test cases
%   The TestCase class defines an individual test case.
%
%   Normally a test writer will create their own test class that is a subclass
%   of TestCase.  Each instance of the TestCase subclass that gets created will
%   be associated with a single test method.
%
%   If a test fixture is needed, override the setUp() and tearDown() methods.
%
%   TestSuite(subclass_name), where subclass_name is the name of a TestCase
%   subclass, creates a test suite containing one TestCase instance per test
%   method contained in the subclass.
%
%   A simpler test-writing alternative to use subfunction-based M-file tests.
%   See the MATLAB xUnit documentation.
%
%   TestCase methods:
%       TestCase - Constructor
%       run      - Execute the test case
%
%   TestCase properties:
%       Location - Location of M-file containing the test case
%       Name     - Name of test case
%
%   See also TestComponent, TestSuite

            %TestCase Constructor
            %   TestCase(methodName) constructs a TestCase object using the
            %   specified testMethod (a string).
            
            self.MethodName = testMethod;
            self.Name = testMethod;
            self.Location = which(class(self));

        function did_pass = run(self, monitor)
            %run Execute the test case
            %    test_case.run(monitor) calls the TestCase object's setUp()
            %    method, then the test method, then the tearDown() method.
            %    observer is a TestRunObserver object.  The testStarted(),
            %    testFailure(), testError(), and testFinished() methods of
            %    observer are called at the appropriate times.  monitor is a
            %    TestRunMonitor object.  Typically it is either a TestRunLogger
            %    subclass or a CommandWindowTestRunDisplay subclass.
            %
            %    test_case.run() automatically uses a
            %    CommandWindowTestRunDisplay object in order to print test
            %    suite execution information to the Command Window.
