When I use MySql.EntityFrameworkCore 6.0.7, if I do not specify a database in my connection string, I get a "No database selected" exception when using the entities to select data with Linq statements.  Oddly, When I use SaveChanges to insert records into the database, I do not get any errors.  When I use MySql.EntityFrameworkCore 3.1.27, I can do all operations without any errors.  Additionally, in both versions, I can use the underlying MySqlConnection to query the database, without specifying the database in the connection string.  This seems like a bug with the .Net 6 versions of MySql.EntityFrameworkCore, since it was working fine in the old versions, plus my entities have the schema defined, so I should not have to supply that in the connection string.

Stack Trace:‚ÄČ MySqlStream.ReadPacket() NativeDriver.GetResult(Int32& affectedRow, Int64& insertedId) Driver.GetResult(Int32 statementId, Int32& affectedRows, Int64& insertedId) Driver.NextResult(Int32 statementId, Boolean force) MySqlDataReader.NextResult() MySqlCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior behavior) MySqlCommand.ExecuteDbDataReader(CommandBehavior behavior) DbCommand.ExecuteReader() RelationalCommand.ExecuteReader(RelationalCommandParameterObject parameterObject) Enumerator.InitializeReader(Enumerator enumerator) <>c.b__19_0(DbContext _, Enumerator enumerator) MySQLExecutionStrategy.Execute[TState,TResult](TState state, Func3 operation, Func3 verifySucceeded) Enumerator.MoveNext() List1.ctor(IEnumerable1 collection) Enumerable.ToList[TSource](IEnumerable`1 source)

How to repeat:
Use MySQL entities to select data from a table, without database being in the connection string.  This will work in version 3.1.27, but will throw an exception in version 6.0.7.

Suggested fix:
Allow all Entity Framework operations without specifying database in the connection string, since it is effectively already specified as the schema in the entity declaration.

Did this issue ever get addressed?  I just grabbed MySql.EntityFrameworkCore 6.0.16, and it is still exhibiting the behavior.

The year is now 2024 and I still see this bug in MySql.EntityFrameworkCore 6.0.25.  Am I the only person who is impacted by this?
