nterprise Ar chive When it comes to deploying a Forms application you need to get all your FMX, PLL and MMX files and make sure you put them on the correct place on the application server before you can run the application. Wouldn't it be great if you could zip up all of these files in the correct structure and just "drop" them onto your new application server? Well J2EE already gives you that. The EAR file allows the J2EE application to be bundled and deployed as a single file.
Enterprise ARchive file. A Java file type.

Effective Annual Rate. The amount of loan interest charged each year by a lender. Unlike the Annual Percentage Rate (APR) it does not include charges and fees and can therefore be misleading when it comes to calculating the cost of a loan.
The Estimated Average Requirement (EAR) is the intake value that is estimated to meet the requirement defined by a specified indicator of adequacy in 50 percent of an age- and gender-specific group. At this level of intake, the remaining 50 percent of the specified group would not have its needs met. This figure is to be used as the basis for developing the RDA.
Estimated average requirement. The intake value that is estimated to be optimal for about half of the individuals in a specified group. In other words, the EAR meets a specified requirement in 50 percent of an age- and gender-specific group. At this level of intake, the remaining 50 percent of the specified group would not have its needs met. EAR is one of the guidelines encompassed in DRI (dietary reference intakes) established by the National Academy of Sciences.
This is the value given where half of a certain group of people, according to age and/or fitness and/or gender would have their supplement requirements met sufficiently. An EAR is one of the DRI (Dietary Reference Intake) guide values. (See DRI‘s).

Estimates of tonnage and grade are based on available sampling data and on knowledge of the deposit characteristics as determined in the best known parts of the deposit or in similar deposits. EAR correspond to DOE's Probable Potential Resource Category.
