Maven SDK
The Maven Alfresco SDK is a community project that provides an easy to use approach to developing applications and extensions for Alfresco. You can use the SDK to develop, package, test, run, document and release your Alfresco extension project.
MBean
An MBean (managed bean) is a Java object that represents a manageable resource, which is running in the JVM (Java Virtual Machine). Alfresco uses MBeans for JMX-based monitoring and management through read-only, configuration and management beans.
metadata
Metadata describes data itself, and provides information about the content of the data.
MIME type
Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (MIME) is a standard that extends an email to support processing of non-standard formats, for example, non-text or non-ASCII character sets.

MIME types form a standard way of classifying file types on the Internet. Internet programs such as Web servers and browsers all have a list of MIME types, so that they can transfer files of the same type in the same way, no matter what operating system they are working in.

A MIME type has two parts: a type and a subtype. They are separated by a forward slash (/). For example, the MIME type for Microsoft Word files is application and the subtype is msword. Together, the complete MIME type is application/msword. Source: What is a MIME type?

MMT
See Module Management Tool.
Model-View-Controller
Model-View-Controller (MVC) is a design pattern for implementing user interfaces. The model is central and consists of application data and business logic. The view is the output, and the controller accepts input and converts it to commands for the model or view.
Module Management Tool (MMT)
The Alfresco Module Management Tool (MMT) helps to install and manage modules packaged as AMP (Alfresco Module Package) files. These AMP files are applied to a target WAR file; for example, share.war.
Multi-tenancy
Alfresco supports multi-tenancy (MT) features that enable Alfresco to be configured as a true single-instance, multi-tenant environment. Multi-tenancy allows multiple, independent tenants to be hosted on a single instance, which can be installed either on a single server or across a cluster of servers.
Multicast
Multicast is communication from a single sender to multiple recipients.
MVC
See Model View Controller.
