Is there a standard way to provide user documentation for my module?
Note: These pages are being reviewed.
Yes. See the JavaHelp Integration API which describes how to include JavaHelp documentation in a module under Help > Contents; and you can provide rich context help rather easily, linking into the same documentation.
There is an IDE wizard for creating a help set for your module.
