We discuss some remarkable features of the light-front holographic mapping of classical gravity in anti-de Sitter space modified by a confining dilaton background. In particular, we show that a positive-sign dilaton solution exp(2 z2) has better chances to describe the correct hadronic phenomenology than the negative solution exp(2 z2) extensively studied in the literature. We also show that the use of twist-scaling dimensions, instead of canonical dimensions, is required to give a good description of the spectrum and form factors of hadrons. Another key element is the explicit connection of AdS modes of total angular momentum J with the internal structure of hadrons and the proper identification of the orbital angular momentum of the constituents.
