Steps to use hibernate in the project


What are the summary steps to use hibernate in the project?
What I know is the following, but I need to know if I am missing something:

  1. If it is maven project, then I have to add the dependency.
  2. The xml configuration.
  3. At the class that represents the database table, import the following:

import javax.persistence.Column;
import javax.persistence.Entity;
import javax.persistence.EnumType;
import javax.persistence.Enumerated;
import javax.persistence.Id;
import javax.persistence.Table;
import javax.persistence.Transient;

But I am sure I am missing to know other steps, and I am missing to know what I have to import in the class that will do the save and select statement from the database.

Can someone advise me please?
