How have you imported your project?
The right way is "File > Import > Existing Maven Projects".
This seems like a class-path issue, check whether you have JPA API (hibernate-jpa-2.0-api) listed in your dependencies
("Package Explorer > Maven Dependencies").
Thanks for getting back to me.
This issue was indeed a dependency issue. I used the m2e tool Maven -> Add Dependency and added the highlighted 'hibernate' and 'hornetq' dependencies.
The project will now build without errors.
Next step is I need to figure out the Maven build/deploy process. I haven't been able to successfully to run the app on the JBoss 5 server yet.
