Depends on the sort of tests you want to write.

The Erlang Test Server will allow you to write as complex system tests as you want. It runs through a set of suite and test set-up routines, you execute your tests and it tears down your environment.

Typically I create a new db schema, load it with test data, start an application (or applications) and then execute tests against the known environment - depending on the product.

For large web apps you can use Tsung to record and script the http input and run regression tests, or you can use it as a 'white noise' tester and fire a million random inputs in and then look for crash reports (both work for me) .
