For normal tools, that is quite easy: one uses the galaxy/tool/XXX

But for dependency wrappers, the only solution that I have found is to
upload the wrapper to a toolshed and installing it via the admin

uploading it to a toolshed and installing it from there?
If you've not seen planemo, I suggest you have a look at
or the slides John
gave at GCC 2015:
For tool testing during development this ought to work:
planemo test path/to/your/tool
For tool dependency testing, I used to rely on the nightly tests
run on the main and Test Tool Shed, currently unavailable. One
option here is to run your own local tool shed just for development,
but the Test Tool Shed is a reasonable substitute. See also:
planemo shed_test --help
I recently started work on the new "planemo dependency_script"
which attempts to parse tool_dependencies.xml into a bash
script - that is still a work in progress but might help here too:
See also https://github.com/galaxyproject/planemo/issues/19
for the wider issue of testing tool_dependencies.xml with
planemo without a tool shed.
