15.16.1. Transaction Overview

Transactions are not explicitly started on the storage engine level, but are instead implicitly started through calls to either start_stmt() or external_lock(). If the preceding functions are called and a transaction already exists the transaction is not replaced.

The storage engine stores transaction information in per-connection memory and also registers the transaction in the MySQL server to allow the server to later issue COMMIT and ROLLBACK operations.

As operations are performed the storage engine will have to implement some form of versioning or logging to permit a rollback of all operations executed within the transaction.

After work is completed, the MySQL server will call either the commit() function or the rollback() function defined in the storage engine's handlerton.
