I've had some struggles getting Java, Eclipse and Maven to work properly on my configuration.

Ubuntu 12.04
Java 8
Eclipse Indigo 3.7
Maven 3.0

Task: Install Maven plug in through Eclipse.
Question: Do you know which plug in works for my config?

1) Installed Eclipse & Maven via Software center.
2) Following this AskUbuntu question "Install the Eclipse Marketplace" in step 4 the options below are presented:

1 -Maven Integration for Eclipse (Luna 4.4);
2- Maven (Java EE) Integration for Eclipse WTP (Luna 4.4);
3 -Maven Integration for Eclipse WTP (Juno 3.8/ 4.2)
4 -Maven Integration for Eclipse (Luna 4.4 and newer)

I'm not entirely clear on how plugins work; if I should be using the newest released plug in even if it's newer than my software version? Or the one closest to my Eclipse version?

Help please!

I took the plunge and tried "3 -Maven Integration for Eclipse WTP (Juno 3.8/ 4.2) "

and it worked. I'll circle back if any errors happen in relation to this plug in.
