Definition :
Transaction is a methodology implemented by EJBs to manage the business data accurately and reliably.

Can we say like this in one sentence?

Puthriah,
A transaction is more than that. A transaction can be used by other things besides EJBs (like jdbc.) It also ensures the ACID properties. You can google "ACID transaction" for more details on this.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
