DotNetNuke Custom Module Testenvironment ?

I´m looking for a efficent test environment for own custom modules:

Actually I have to compile the module, load it into DNN each time
in order to check if it work.
I´would like to use a more efficient test environment similar to Java' JUNIT
or own webapplication that imports the custom module in order to check it
Does somebody have samples for such testapplication / classes ? Please
Thanx for a hint.

Are you talking test environment (as in unit testing or string testing) or a test deployment to load your module into.
If you are looking for a test/development setup, then the two mentioned in the other posts will work fine.
If you are looking for automated testing such as NUnit, then there may be some that have the test code you are looking for.
Please specify which you are looking for.

thanks for you feedback.

My basic problem is: Each time I want to test changes
I have made on my custom modules,
I have to recompile them, to reload them in a DNN environment,
before being able to check if it works.
Thats takes a while, if you have a lot of changes.
So I´m looking for either:
a. Standalone (Test)Webapplication which tests presentation, business and data access layer
of the module, preferable with debugging functionaliy
This Application would basically replaces DNN as master application
b. an automated testing environment you have mentioned.
The last three years I was member of a developer team
who did the maintenance on a framework for C++ Application
Then, I found it very comfortable to have testing environment as follows:
For each framework class we had a testing class to do the automatic test,
Very useful for doing quick retests, before new releases, when time is short.
For Java Development we used JUNIT for the automated tests.
Now in our company we start using DNN, and we are looking for a similar tool for DNN.
Thanks for a hint

for my module development, I use the framework setup that dnnjungle suggests (see other posts). I then manually add the module to my test/development portal to allow for debugging and testing. Once that is complete, I install the module in production dnn portal.
in the DNN 3.0 Visual Studio solution, there is a project that appears to be there for nunit purposes. I've not had the chance to verify how it is used by the core team, but it is possible to use nunit to automate the testing of the framework. Other than that, i am not aware of any other tools out there.

Applying Ibuyspy/Dotnetnuke custom modules

Has it something to do with the complex architecture? I'll try to list a couple of integration strategies, hoping that the community will flag their opinions: 1. Rewrite an IBS module...

What Module is using for DNN3 modules?

Shawn: When you use a third party module on the dotnetnuke site, you should probably add a tag line IDing it to the bottom of it so that the rest of us can check it out! Thanks. That is Patrick Santry's Resource Directory Manager. I'm not sure what Patrick's plan are with this module in the future or ...
