Can someone explain to me the difference between the 'create' and
'getModel' methods and why I'd ever need to use the former over the

create is an old old method that will be deprecated by 3.1, it was just left in for compatibility purposes. It is a simple facade to create objects, I would not use it.

getModel() is asking WireBox for objects via dependency injection and conventions, which is what you want to use.

Thanks Luis - I thought as much, but wanted to ensure that I was not
missing something.
