    <jboss-transaction-spi.version>7.6.0.Final</jboss-transaction-spi.version>
    <jboss-logging.version>3.2.1.Final</jboss-logging.version>
</propeties>

BASE Transaction

Since we have not packed the BASE implementation jar into ShardingSphere-Proxy, you should copy relevant jar which implement ShardingSphereTransactionManager SPI to conf/lib, then switch the transaction type to BASE.
