23.17.2 Starting a Transaction

A transaction is started by the storage engine in response to a call to either the start_stmt() or external_lock() methods.

If there is no active transaction, the storage engine must start a new transaction and register the transaction with the MySQL server so that ROLLBACK or COMMIT can later be called.
