Hello there.,
Can anyone here brief me in detail about the ACID properties that support Transaction in EJB.

See ya

Not sure about the phrasing there: EJBs support Transactions which should support the ACID properties, not the other way around.
The EJB 1.1 spec states that EJBs support distributed transactions (flat rather than nested), and as such they provide facilities for making completion of a unit of work atomic, and isolate the units of work from one another. I would think that consistency checking is delegated to the JDBC driver and database itself (although it depends upon the EJB type and methods used for database mapping). Facilities for durability are also provided, but I think much depends upon the JDBC driver. The servers that manage the EJB containers that I have come across use JDBC for their database connectivity.
I recommend that you read the EJB 1.1 specification, especially chapter 11, which goes into more detail about the EJB and its transactional capabilities.
I'm not sure what changes in transactions are brought in with the EJB 2.0 spec (not at Final Release stage yet).
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
