What exactly does the "Model" part mean? Is it the same as the domain model? I've read that it's a map, but I'm having a hard time understanding the concept.

  • where did you read it? provide more details. – EL Yusubov Aug 4 '12 at 15:59

I've always treated it as a View Model as opposed to a pure Domain Model, the ModelAndView class name lends itself to that distinction as well as the use of a Map to drop various bits of model data in for viewing purposes.
