As far as I got that definitions (thanks Pradeep) you could involve mocking. A list of mock frameworks is available here.

Aslak Hellesoy recommends the usage of jMock

At the moment, I am using a library called jMock, which is the evolution of the first mock object framework that came around created by--Oh my God, I have to mention all the names--I don�t remember all the names. They found some flaws in the initial design and they got together and they figured out a better way to do it, so jMock was born.

If you're talking about a web application, a relatively popular choice is to use a library such as HttpUnit, JWebUnit, HtmlUnit, Jameleon, FIT, FitNesse, etc. against the UI (or a service layer beneath the UI) with the code executing against a real database and other similar resources that are usually mocked out somehow in unit tests.

If you are interested in more information about integration testing, look at "Managing your Way through the Integration and Test Black Hole". This article presents approaches to estimate and manage more accurately the integration and test efforts.

Frank,
Good article. Thanks for sharing the link. I like the graph on defects per module. I found it interesting that they separated code from compiling.

No, it's not only you. They are two othogonal things, I'd say.
