getting started with Maven

Description

Hello,

I just learn what Hibernate ORM is, and on this stie I found information that "Getting Started Guide is the best place to start" - so I try to follow it.

I am familiar with Maven, so I though I will use it to get Hibernate.

I tried to browse "Maven Repository Artifacts" section, but it's pretty complicated. First of all, first link seems not current (page was moved), but anyway, I used to finding just group, artifact ID and version which I can put info my pom.xml. Here I try to read all those pages, wonder if I am a developer or a user, and there are some weird (at least from my point of view) repository tags to add...

I tried searching for it in Google and found this question, from which it actually seems possible to add just one simple dependency... "If I'm using JPA".

To be honest, I'm also not sure which approach should I take - "Native Hibernate APIs and hbm.xml Mapping", "Native Hibernate APIs and Annotation Mappings", "Java Persistence API (JPA)" or "Envers". I feel it's not described well on this page.

As a total newcomer, I find this "getting started" guide really too complicated.
