Where to use wsgen?

I am learning JAX-WS 2.0 and don't seem to know where (what directory - source or classes) to properly use wsgen against my WebService class...

Create a sample document literal based WebService:

Created the Publisher like this:

Using Eclipse Helios, I automatically build both of these files as *.classes underneath the corresponding classes directory.

So, from the filesystem, my project looks like this:

In which directory would I run wsgen?

When I tried it inside:

/code/jaxws_sample/src/wsgen -cp . hello.HelloWorld


It actually does show me the WSDL in a browser and also when I tried to issue the wsgen command from $MyProject/classes it actually did create a jaxws folder with the SayHelloResponse.class files but not the files?

Would appreciate it if someone could help me...

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
