    ejb == ???


    Let's have some acronym descriptions here please! I finally grokked that
    ejb probably stands for enterprise java beans. Probably. It always bugs
    me when obscure acronyms are used and not explained or at least the words
    they stand for spelled out at first usage in the article. </rant>

    If you think that EJB is an "obscure acronym", then you probably shouldn't
    be reading or writing posts to the java.enterprise message area.

    Huhhh
    EJB is nothing
    Acronyms are all the hype in SWD at the moment for some reason.

    I think it is because they want to dumbfound those who are not in the industry
    to make them think they know more than they really do.

    Problems come when you know 2 or more technologies many with the same acronyms
    used for different things. I end up getting them mixed up.

    I think it is alright for things like EJB because they describe a whole though
    in truth not that large a section in Java programming but when they start
    to use acronyms to describe every small little think for example is done
    in Mickey soft network administration that is exactly what you get a Mickey
    mouse setup.

    Donít bother remembering the acronym just remember what it stands for, what
    it stands for usually makes the technology self explanatory.

    If you come across an acronym you donít know the meaning is usually detailed
    on the web or part of a book somewhere just write the meaning down for reference,
    it is stupid but it is no big deal.

    There isnt really a point for them to write the meaning of something like
    EJB here but I think they should at least for beginners have some sort of
    reference somewhere.
