Java constructors should be included in the same list as methods for compatibility with Matlab.

See the Matlab help page ( for an example that shows that 'methods java.lang.String' returns 'String' as one of the method names.

after having added some functionality,
above all method getConstructors(Class),
extracted common code from
getConstructors(Class), , getMethods(Class) and getFields(Class)
into new methods appendModifiers and appendParamsThrwbs.

After the problem, here the solution.
I made some minor improvements in sibling methods getMethods and getFields also.

As functions fieldnames and methods apply to java objects
and to java class names
and return a cell array of fields and methods,
an according functionality for constructors is desirable also .
