Unit testing approach for nginx modules

Hello everyone,
We are developing nginx modules to implement few usecases in our product. Most of the other usecases cases have been implemented using Java. At my office we follow TDD for Java development. TDD for Java development is easy due to availability of unit-testing and mocking frameworks. We are wondering if we can follow TDD for development of nginx modules as well. We have tried couple of unit-testing frameworks for C (Unity and CMocka) but we have found it very difficult to write useful testcases using these frameworks.

Can you please suggest a suitable approach? Also if unit testing is not the way to go, then what should be the approach for developing, testing and maintaining large nginx modules?

Thanks & Regards,
