Thanks the reason I asked was because all the examples I have seen online
seems to be using the maps.

That's an exaggeration.  All software requires maintenance, perhaps Maps
require less...but the end result is less as well.

A bicycle requires less maintenance than a sports car too....but I know what
I'm driving home from work.  ;-)

2nd one:
2)You don't have to change or maintain it.
As project evolves and front end and back end evolve... there is no 
maitanance or CRUFT or duplication.

I used to do beans for many years. Then I started w/ Groovy, CoR, C#,
Flash, etc... They all are Map and Collections based. Even when I make a
JTable it needs a collection. I my case, I have no needs for a bean. All 
my API only takes Map args and sometimes return Lists. (A silly little
varargs). After all how often do you get a class cast exception!
