13.3 Transactional and Locking Statements

MySQL supports local transactions (within a given client session) through statements such as SET autocommit, START TRANSACTION, COMMIT, and ROLLBACK. See Section 13.3.1, “START TRANSACTION, COMMIT, and ROLLBACK Syntax”. XA transaction support enables MySQL to participate in distributed transactions as well. See Section 13.3.7, “XA Transactions”.
