Hi Guillaume,
   A Maven plugin for build time enhancement of entities is coded up. 
Not without a few problems along the way. But I think we are there now. 
Comments are in-lined with your questions.
  There should be a plugin in the maven repo soon (if not now) using a 
Mojo and the necessary descriptors declaring dependencies. pull/669

  The documentation has a PR waiting to merge showing users how to 
configure for Ant, Maven or Gradle. Look at 
https://github.com/hibernate/hibernate-orm/pull/667 for configuration 
information going into the reference manual.

  Are there more dependency declarations you needed ?
