This is a simple questions, but prehaps a bit long winded, any refferances you wish to give will be fine.

I just want to know what has Oracle done in their development to overcome the problems of the acid test?

Oracle meets all the ACID transaction criteria, which are:

Atomicity: a transaction either all succeeds or all fails
Consistency: a transaction takes the database from one consistent state to another
Isolation: until committed, the work done in one transaction is not visible to others
Durability: once committed, the work done by a transaction is permanent

Is that what you are refering to?

I don't have any references for you, other than Tom Kyte's excellent book "Expert One-on-one Oracle", which covers this in Chapter 4.
