From Oracle FAQ
ACID refers to the basic properties of a database transaction: Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, and Durability.
All Oracle database, Oracle RDB and InnoDB transactions comply with these properties. However, Oracle's Berkeley DB database is not ACID-compliant.
The entire sequence of actions must be either completed or aborted. The transaction cannot be partially successful.
The transaction takes the resources from one consistent state to another.
A transaction's effect is not visible to other transactions until the transaction is committed.
Changes made by the committed transaction are permanent and must survive system failure.
