how to access compiled classes from a java project

Hi

I am only starting in plugin development for intellij, so bear with me.
I've read the documentation
on http://www.jetbrains.com/idea/plugins/plugin_developers.html and
looked at the source code of some of the plugins bundled as example, but
can't seem to find the answer to my problem:

I have written an action that can be run on a module. In that action, I
want to do some kind of analyses of the bytecode (class files) of the
module the action was invoked on. I found how I can access the module and
the project etc, but how do I get a reference to the class files, or the
output directory, or some way to access them?

I saw that there is something like a CompileContext, which seems to
provide what I need, but that seems to be for usage in the context of a
CompileTask, which is (I think) not what I need. I just want access to the
already compiled code of the module I'm working on.

Thanks in advance,
Jan
