Online test case generation directly executes the system under test, by calling functions of its application programming interface (API). Such direct API testing can be extended by calling an adapter layer instead of the system. This unifies offline and online testing and also opens the door to different types of applications of test case generation. These include generation data structures instead of code, interfacing with systems that do not have an API, including systems with a graphical user interface, and even model-based simulation. We give a new view on this problem by looking at our past work.
