Interview Answer

Most software today is very much like an Egyptian pyramid with millions of bricks piled on top of each other, with no structural integrity, but just done by brute force and thousands of slaves. Alan Kay

Explain the ACID Properties


Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability is a set of properties that guarantee that database transactions are processed reliably.

Atomicity

Atomicity requires that each transaction be completed successfully or nothing execute. A transaction consists of many steps. If any step fails, all the transactions are rolled back.

Consistency

The consistency property ensures that any transaction will bring the database from one valid state to another. The database will move from one consistent state to another, if the transaction succeeds and remain in the original state, if the transaction fails.

Isolation

The isolation property ensures that the concurrent execution of transactions results in a system state that would be obtained if transactions were executed serially.

Durability

The durability property ensures that once a transaction has been committed, it will remain in persistent storage.
