There should be a way to create a Platform Module project that is based on an existing Library project. When the module
is compiled, it should compile the library project, and import the resulting jar files. It should also support
code-completion based on the library project's current sources.
It is very annoying to have to create a module-library project and manually update the jar file every time I modify the
associated library project; also, currently, module-library projects have NO support for code-completion.

Code completion works for me for library built from sources in NB 6.5, could you try it with 6.5?
Regarding manual copying of library jar, there is an easy workaround. Override target "netbeans-extra" in your Library
Wrapper's build.xml and copy the library jar from library project to binary-origin in the wrapper project. Like this:
<copy file="../MyLibProject/dist/MyLib.jar" todir="release/modules/ext" />
That way Library Wrapper always uses latest version of the library jar. Maybe we could support copying jar from external
location in New Library Wrapper Wizard.
