Description:
development enviroments are as follows: 
jdk:SE1.6
web server: tomcat5.5 
database server:mysql 5.1 (non-install edition)
connector version:5.1

when I write a file in txt format into blob, It works well, but when I try to write a file in binary format (gif,jpg,jpeg, xls, doc, etc) into blob, exception occurs.

core codes are as follows:
===============================
PreparedStatement st = conn.prepareStatement( "insert into business (businessname,methodfile) values(?,?)");
BufferedInputStream inn = new BufferedInputStream(new FileInputStream(uploadedfile));
st.setString(1, businessname);
st.setBinaryStream(2,inn,inn.available());

================================
Exception are as follows:
com.mysql.jdbc.exceptions.jdbc4.MySQLSyntaxErrorException: You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'm?????k??7°Kdnn??f??í6i!??‘????¤?AH?2<RS$”uo?é?????í íx??????±????1?%? 
|' at line 1
	

How to repeat:
write a jpeg file into blob,we can repeat the bug.

development enviroments are as follows: 
jdk:SE1.6
web server: tomcat5.5 
database server:mysql 5.1 (non-install edition)
connector version:5.1

Thank you for the report.

Please provide values of max_allowed_packet and size of jpeg file you are trying to insert.
[29 Sep 2009 6:13] Liu Changsheng
max_allowed_packet :16M
the size of file I try to insert:162K.
actually, I tried many files with different size.but non is successful.

Liu, this should work...

Can you please do the following:
  o Check c/J sources, package testsuite.simple, BlobTest.java and see if it works in your environment.
  o Try plain Java test, apart from Tomcat and such.
  o Attach full test case (as well as connection string and JRE settings) I can use to check on problem.
[3 Oct 2009 23:39] Liu Changsheng
OK, I will do it with your instructions, and I will report the result to you as soon as possible.Thank you.

When I run the testsuite.simple.BlobTest, Exceptions are as follows

My character environment are as follows,does it matter?

mysql> show variables like 'character_set_%';

So Liu, you actually have the same error except that some chars are different now...

I would really like to see "  o Attach full test case (as well as connection string and JRE settings) I can use to check on problem." now.
[6 Oct 2009 3:02] Liu Changsheng
I have attached the file, which includes jre setting,connction string and source code of BlobTest.java.
Please check it.
Thanks.
[6 Oct 2009 3:03] Liu Changsheng
jre settings,connection string and source code of BlobTest.java

Attachment: JRE_SETTING_AND_CONNECTIONSTRING_AND_SOURCECODE.txt (text/plain), 15.26 KiB.

Thanks Liu.

After discussing this the conclusion is:
  o GBK is not 100% mapped in UTF8 c/J uses
  o This could also be a bug in Microsoft implementation of GBK
  o Thus either OS or Java are unable to encode GBK data to proper HEX values

Mark, I think only you can tell which is the right reason.
[30 Aug 2010 8:25] Tonci Grgin
Using Server-side prepared statements should solve this.
[5 Oct 2010 1:47] Jonas Roque
I've implemented server-side prepared statements but that won't work also.
[6 Feb 2014 23:30] Haiwu Li
I have the same issue, but in my case, I found if the picture size is less than about 2KB, then it's ok. I don't know what's the reason. The error message is:
