Can I get some orientation on how these technologies integrate? Is any of them dependent on another?

Please don't tell me I'm a clueless newbie. That's the one thing I already know.

We don't do that here. Our number one rule is "Be Nice" the number two rule is your are registered as your real first and real last names.

So Java is the programming language to write applications.
Spring is a Java framework to simplify your Java applications, especially Enterprise Java applications.
Maven is just a build tool.

So if you are using Spring Framework you are still writing Java code, then to build your application, compile it and create say a war file (you have a web app) then Maven is the tool to compile and build your war file as well as get any dependent jar files that you need from third parties.

I hope that helps
