CSV Engine (tina) allows creating json-type field and writing a row, however, it does not read it.

How to repeat:
mysql> create table t1 (c json not null) ENGINE CSV;
Query OK, 0 rows affected (0.08 sec)

mysql> insert t1 values ('{"a":1}');
Query OK, 1 row affected (0.01 sec)

mysql> select * from t1;
ERROR 3144 (22032): Cannot create a JSON value from a string with CHARACTER SET 'binary'.

The direct cause is ha_tina::find_current_row() uses attribute buffer as binary while Field_json checks charset with ensure_utf8mb4(). The field is always persisted as my_charset_bin (encode_quote), although Field_json::str_val() always produces my_charset_utf8mb4_bin.


      if ((*field)->store(buffer.ptr(), buffer.length(), buffer.charset(),,
                          is_enum ? CHECK_FIELD_IGNORE : CHECK_FIELD_WARN)) {
        if (!is_enum) goto err;


  String attribute(attribute_buffer, sizeof(attribute_buffer), &my_charset_bin);
  for (Field **field = table->field; *field; field++) {
    (*field)->val_str(&attribute, &attribute);
