on the rebel side (star wars) or in opposition (politics). I am sure he has
more experience than me in Maven 2 philosophy. But until I learn something
better to manage corporate artifact dependencies (and 3rd party for that
matter), I will continue to learn Maven. I do have a tough skin. I will look
at Ivy also, I am not a religious person.

Not quite true. Look at

You just have to know the right groupId. Same for Hibernate. The above
search site can help. Manually installing/deploying a jar is a 20 seconds
process. I see no down thumbs in that. A correctly laid out corporate
repository (Artifactory) might help - I am still looking at options.

Having no big projects experience with Maven I can not judge. Personally, I
will walk down the M street for a while - I hope it is not a one way ;-)
