When making ravioli or dumplings with wonton wrappers, should the meat filling be pre-cooked?

I've never tried cooking with wonton wrappers, but am wanting to try making ravioli or dumplings with them. Do you need to cook whatever you're using for a filling before putting it in the wonton wrappers or do you leave it raw? Does it make a difference whether you're boiling, steaming, or frying the dumpling/ravioli as to whether the filling should be raw or pre-cooked? And does it make a difference whether your wonton wrappers are frozen or fresh when deciding on the raw/pre-cooked thing?

Also, if anyone has any recipes using wonton wrappers, feel free to post! Thanks!
