emoticon Yes, MySQL *has* transactions! Lenz Mon, 12 Dec 2005 15:49:04 +0100
Just stumbled about this comment about MySQL 5.0 in an article about OSS Databases in the Inquirer: "This major release in October has remedied many of these shortcomings with new features including ACID transactions..."

Sigh. Transactions have been supported using the InnoDB storage engine since March 2001 when it was added to MySQL in version 3.23 (as part of the Max builds, it was enabled in all binaries starting with MySQL 4.0). What is it about the Internet that such myths stay around for so long? We even have an article that dispels common MySQL misconceptions like this one, but it seems checking facts is too much work...

More info on using Transactions with InnoDB can be found in this tutorial, which is a sample chapter of the "MySQL tutorial" book by Luke Welling and Laura Thomson.
