I've collected a list of acronyms that appear in SCEA topics. I thought it might be useful to others here.
  • ACID = Atomic Consistent Isolatable Durable -- required properties of transactions.
  • ACL = Access Control List
  • BMP = Bean Managed Persistence -- compare with CMP.
  • CA = Certificate Authority -- a body which issues digital certificates.
  • CMP = Container Managed Persistence -- compare with BMP.
  • CMR = Container-Managed Relationship
  • COM = Component Object Model (Microsoft) (see DCOM).
  • CORBA = Common Object Request Broker Architecture
  • DAO = Data Access Object -- design pattern.
  • DCOM = Distributed Component Object Model (Microsoft) -- proprietary, serves same purpose as CORBA.
  • DES = Data Encryption Standard -- symmetric encryption algorithm.
  • DNS = Domain Name System/Service -- service that translates domain names into IP addresses.
  • DMZ = De-Militarized Zone -- Firewall strategy, an intermediate network between internet and intranet.
  • E2E = End-to-End
  • EIS = Enterprise Information System -- databases, CICS, and ERP systems such as SAP, BAAN etc.
  • ENC = Environment Naming Context -- default JNDI context possessed by all EJBs.
  • GIOP = General Inter-ORB Protocol (CORBA)
  • GOF = Gang of Four -- authors of the Design Patterns book.
  • HLB = Hardware Load Balancing
  • IDL = Interface Definition Language (CORBA)
  • IIOP = Internet Inter-ORB Protocol (CORBA) -- GIOP layered over TCP/IP.
  • IOR = Interoperable Object Reference (CORBA)
  • JAAS = Java Authentication and Authorization Service
  • JAF = Java Activation Framework
  • JCA = Java Cryptography Architecture
  • JCE = Java Cryptography Extension
  • JCP = Java Community Process
  • JDBC = Java Data Base Connectivity
  • JDO = Java Data Object(s)
  • JMS = Java Messaging Services
  • JNDI = Java Naming and Directory Interface
  • JNI = Java Native Interface -- can be used to wrap C/C++ or other non-Java code.
  • JRMP = Java Remote Method Protocol -- transport protocol for RMI.
  • JTA = Java Transaction API
  • JTS = Java Transaction Services -- (see JTA)
  • LB = Load Balancing
  • LRU = Least Recently Used -- a strategy used by some containers in deciding which SFSB to passivate.
  • MD5 = Message Digest 5 -- message digest algorithm.
  • MOM = Message Oriented Middleware -- eg: IBM's MQSeries (see JMS).
  • MX = Mail Exchange -- a load partitioning strategy
  • NAT = Network Address Translation -- often used by Firewalls to hide the topology of intranet.
  • OMG = Object Management Group -- non-profit organization that oversees CORBA.
  • ORB = Object Request Broker (CORBA)
  • P2P = Peer-to-peer
  • PAT = Port Address Translation -- (see NAT)
  • PK = Primary Key
  • PTP = Point-to-point -- one model of MOM (see JMS)
  • RMI = Remote Method Invocation
  • RR = Round Robin -- a load sharing strategy.
  • RSA = Rivest, Shamir, Adelman -- asymmetric public key encryption algorithm.
  • SFSB = Stateful Session Bean
  • SHA = Secure Hash Algorithm -- message digest algorithm.
  • SLSB = Stateless Session Bean
  • SSL = Secure Socket Layer
  • TCP/IP = Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol
  • TX = Transaction
  • UML = Unified Modeling Language
  • VPN = Virtual Private Network -- use of encryption to create a secure network on top of another network (eg: Internet).
