I found this tool while looking for some hints on how to go about building a web-application that would run inside a Sharepoint Portal. Is this what the STSDev option to create an "Application Pages with Navigation" Feature is for?

I've just been trying it out and I have a couple of initial questions (I've only built web parts before and that was on Sharepoint 2003, so I'm a bit behind the curve I'm afraid).
How does the navigation graph that is described in ApplicationPageNavigation.xml get exposed to the user?
How do I tie up the code files *.cs with the *.aspx files? If I add a label to the aspx file the cs file can't see it.
