Hi, keutmann, usually we development application page within VS Web Project, and then copy the aspx to layout folder and regist dll to GAC, would like use WSPBuilder to include application page into solution package also, but the wspbuilder project in extention is classlibrary project, so we can not develop the application page in wspbuilder project directly, do you have any good suggestion?

You can build layout pages in a WSPBuilder project, although you won't have access to the designer. If I need to build a more complex page I usually start with SharePoint Designer or a standard web project then move it into a WSPBuilder project and continue making changes, mostly in the base class for the page.
