Are you looking for the etymology of this phrase?
All three parts came separately.
Java was developed as a language.
Java Beans was defined as a convention.
Enterprise Java Beans was defined as a multi-tiered, database-managed architecture, analogous to previous enterprise-level software development architectures.

Where did the name Java come from? (see the bottom of this post)

I'm betting "beans" fell out of coffee beans. java == coffee
And "enterprise" had been used for at least a decade if not longer referring to software that could robustly support a corporation.
