Just about everyone in the newsgroup has (although OS's may vary).

 There must be a best way to develop and text (sic) D Software

Did you mean... There must be a best way to develop and test D Software. This is a large topic and I don't believe can be covered properly in a newsgroup. There are many books devoted to programming practices, project development life cycles and Object Orientated programming principles. Most things that can be applied to C\C++ can also be applied to D. So you have a huge resource of information already available. You'll just have to be aware of the minor differences, which is where this newsgroup becomes invaluable.
 Is it possible to use an editor and batch files for compiling and testing

Yes A possible editor for D is, http://www.scintilla.org/SciTEDownload.html. You'll need to set it up for compliation and syntax highlighting using C/C++/html as a template. It's best if you can install D to c:\dmd\... or at least if you use f: (f:\dmd\...) and also you need to install the DMC++ compiler. Some set up details are included here, http://www.digitalmars.com/d/alpha.html
 Some help would be appreciated

Have fun...
