This provides JUnit-style XML logging for the MATLAB xunit framework developed by Steve Eddin ( The code was developed with version 3.0.1 and supports xunit-style and m-file-style tests. We use this in conjunction with Hudson/Jenkins to track test results.

Below is a code sample illustrating use of the extension. See example.m for details.

%add source code to path
addpath(<path to xunit>);

%import classses, functions
import edu.stanford.covert.test.runtests;
import edu.stanford.covert.test.XMLTestRunDisplay;

%run and log tests
monitor = XMLTestRunDisplay(<Name>, <description>, <output file name>);
runtests(monitor, <tests>)

Hi John,

Thanks for your comments. Sorry I ignored m-file-style tests. I included your code in the update I posted today.

Hi Jonathan, Thanks for providing an update. It is worth noting that this is designed to support xUnit-style tests that subclass the TestCase class. Other test framework options such as function/initTestSuite/subfunction test code and single function test code don't produce useful xml as the test names are lost because the test names are derived from class and method names.

However, to support the other test framework types, I found the following modifications worked (around line 160 in XMLTestRunDisplay.testComponentFinished). May not be the best way to do it, but it is ok for me.

if isa(component, 'TestCase')
this.iTestCase = this.iTestCase + 1;
if strcmp(component.MethodName, 'runTestCase')
[~, filename, ~] = fileparts(component.Location);
if isempty(filename)
classname = component.Name;
classname = filename;
this.TestCases(this.iTestCase).classname = classname;
this.TestCases(this.iTestCase).name = component.Name;
this.TestCases(this.iTestCase).classname = class(component);
this.TestCases(this.iTestCase).name = component.MethodName;
this.TestCases(this.iTestCase).location = component.Location;
this.TestCases(this.iTestCase).time = component_run_time;

Anyway, thanks for sharing this code!

Hi John,
I apologize I forgot to include that additional package. Please see the updated release.

This XML logging would be a great extension to xUnit, unfortunately, the initial upload is not runnable due to missing package code (edu.stanford.covert.util)
