Maven: Add JBoss Maven repository as your alternate remote repository.

Hibernate publishes its artifacts to the JBoss Maven Repository under the org.hibernate groupId/namespace. To setup Maven to access JBoss Maven Repository follow the steps here. This will add the JBoss Maven Repository as an additional repository along with central maven repository.

Create a file named 'settings.xml' in the '.m2' directory under your home directory For me it is: /home/rhasija/.m2 and add the following content to it:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>  
<settings>  
    <profiles>
        <profile>
