I'll take a shot and somebody can correct me. The domain is related to 
your data, your database, how you modeled the problem into pieces of 
data. So the object domain would be the objects related to holding or 
delivering data from you persistence/database.

In the MVC, model/view/controller, pattern the model is the 
data/database. The view presents it to an input device i.e. screen or 
web page. The controllers work between the two.

The object domain would be the model objects. A SQL database, say.

That's my take.
