I so far have imported everything using Maven. I just add lines to the dependencies in the pom.xml file and the files "magically" appear. Now I want to use a JSON serializer that doesn't appear to be in the Maven repositories (at least I don't see any instructions:. I just see a .jar file. How do I use it and make the project aware of its facilities and symbols? I am relatively new to java so this may be a very simpllistic question so please bear with me.
