I posted this question yesterday only to understand now that my problem is probably completely different.
According to the Enabling Hibernate Support guide, I need to add hibernate support by selecting it in the Add Framework Support dialog, but the problem is that I don't have hibernate listed in the dialog.
There's a bunch of other options, but hibernate isn't one of them.
I guess that this is causing the problems of intellij not associating my entity annotated classes as hibernate entities.
Any idea what might be the reason for hibernate not being listed?
