Design so you can mock the outside world as far as you can (database, filesystem, the system clock, even), but have some level of integration testing so that you verify the connections between your system and the outside world work.

I've done the 'use a test database' thing as well in the past, and that really wasn't a good thing...
Java, Basic, who cares - it's all a bunch of tree-hugging hippy cr*p
