Below is the dump file which breaks the execution in this path - 

I have noticed this has BLOB datatype and  i suspect this is issue 

INSERT INTO `tablename` VALUES (2494,'%PDF-1.4\n%âãÏÓ\n3 0 obj <<

anil, this is why the --hex-blob option to mysqldump is useful.
please, check if this will work better..

Thank you for the report.

Please send us what mysqldump command outputs while you are trying to restore the dump.

Dump file which breaks in the middle.

Attachment: dump.sql.zip (application/zip, text), 504.55 KiB.

Below is the command
./mysqldump -uroot -hhostname -ppassword --hex-blob jasperserver > "/media/disk/backups/jasperserver_`date`.sql"

Thank you for the feedback.

This looks like duplicate of bug #33048, but is interesting how you created invalid dump from such data. Please run queries:

CREATE TABLE bug56587 LIKE jirepositorycache;
INSERT INTO bug56587 SELECT * FROM jirepositorycache;

Then send us bug56587.MYD, bug56587.MYI and bug56587.frm files.
