Yes - much the easiest. I usually set up a test server with all files
relative to the working directory so that the development is
self-contained. It is often necessary to clear out and rebuild the
database so I have scripts for that.

I keep an LDIF file with the structural entries to reload when
rebuilding, and one or more LDIFs with example data for testing.

Tests get written in Perl using Net::LDAP and Test::Simple -
especially useful for ACL tests.

I use jxplorer or similar for schema and tree browsing.
