When I was trying to understand database design databaseanswers.org was phenomenal. Now I'm trying to understand the Spring Framework and I'd like to know if there are any sites out there that have domain models already created that I could use as a basis for learning Spring.

I am not sure what do you mean by "Domain models already created". However, here is a shot. Microsoft provides sample databases with both schema and data that you can download and install.

The sample databases are Northwind and AdventureWorks.

A different download is provided for each version of Microsoft SQL Server, so be careful.

@MainMa, thanks for the editing. Since there are lots of various versions, I posted the sites, rather than linking to a specific version. However, I think it is OK this way also since the reader will be able to locate other versions if he/she is interested. –  Emmad Kareem Jul 21 '12 at 10:20
Thanks as I had a hard time trying to word this question, but you provided exactly what I needed. –  Robert Jul 21 '12 at 14:12
