Thanks for such an ultra-fast response.
my ./target/classes/  directory indeed contains no classes. it just gets 
a chain of empty directories, as you would expect,
corresponding to my GroupId and artifactId.

Unfortunately i do not know how to 'make sure all classes are compiled 
there', beacuse i have not
learned Java yet. Can you explain?

My working environment is usually Maven, Eclipse, and the 'Maven 
integration for eclipse' plugin from
But any sort of explanation would be VERY gratefully recieved.
