Quality Assurance(QA) use maven and testng to call the remote service interface and add assertions to ensure that the interface returns meet expectations.

The core lies in the test case calling the interface of the remote service for testing, using pitest when running the case, whether it can be mutated for the remote service?

It is not possible to mutate a remote service. The tests and code under test must run in the same jvm.

hi  henry,
     Can I ask for advice the reason why the tests and code under test must run in the same jvm ? 
     Thank you for your reply.

This is fundamental to how pitest works - bytecode is manipulated in memory to create mutations. If the code is running in a separate jvm it will not be mutated.
