EAI is an overall broad notion of how systems communicate one to another. RMI and CORBA are simply instances of enabling technology that can make EAI happen.

RMI is for Java communications, and is functionally equivalent to Internet Inter-ORB Protocol in the world of CORBA. CORBA is a development and interface standard for building applications that can link together using common interfaces.
