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).

You're missing one that's on the test too.
