In MVC architecture "M" represents the model, which is nothing but the java class.

Can anything else act as a model? Can Java bean be a model?

Sure, why not? There is nothing magical about a Java bean, its just a class that uses the bean conventions. You are free to code the "model" representation of data any way that fits the rest of your application.

Personally I start with thinking about how the data is saved and restored.

Hi,

MVC denotes Model ( can be Java beans or EJB )
V denotes View ( can be JSP xml and more)
C denotes ontroller (Should be a servlet or struts-config.xml if you are using struts framework)

Model is nothing but business logics..

Your model is your business logic. You want to keep it separate from View generation logic and Controller Logic. But the actual Java artifact that implements the model is up to you. I think you should do it in a JavaBean. Some have done it in Servlets. Others have done everything in a JSP.

And really, don't we all pine for that one, monolithic object, that does everything, sits in the root of C:\, and has one bit method called go() that does everything?
