Testing apps like MINA is always a problem.  Our app that uses MINA
also ran into the same set of problems.  We've ended up using mock
objects (easymock) and wired together a test hierarchy that provides
"utility" and "setup" services.  It might be overkill most of the
times, but we need extensive test support.

Maybe it might make sense for MINA to make use of mock objects (IIRC
there was something in MINA that was using mock objects)
