freebie to generate class diagram from existing java source

I used to just download TogetherJ's whiteboard edition, but it seems they don't have that anymore.
I have a bunch of java source that I would like to wrap my head around. A class diagram does not exist. Is there a freebie way to get a class diagram from this source, in, say, an hour?

I think I may have answered my own question: www.togethercommunity.com
Rather than calling it "the whiteboard edition", they now call it "the community edition"

Well that didn't work. I guess the free version of TogetherJ is now an editor, not a UML tool.
Okay - I'm open to suggestions.

Download a trial version of Rational Rose J Edition and reverse engineer your ".class" files.
That should work.

Note sure but maybe Argo can do what you intend doing Paul.
Sorry I dont have time to dig furher.
Paul I also found this link on the Argo site. One of the features is reverse engineering from Java sources,. Good luck.

By the way Paul.
If you decide to download PoseidonCE dont forget to read the intalation instructions
Licensing Community Edition (General):
On the first start of PoseidonCE, a license dialog will be shown. You have to enter a valid license key here in order to use PoseidonCE. For the Community Edition, a valid license key is provided in the poseidon/bin directory (InterimPoseidonCE.key) and should automatically be used. If this fails for some reasons, click on "Add key file ..." and select that file. Finally, "Start Application" will continue starting PoseidonCE.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
