When a prepared statement query includes the quoted identifier character (`) as part of a quoted string, the quoted identifier character is recognised. As a consequence the query is not parsed correctly.

select * from TestTable where col1 = 'ABC`DEF' and col2 = ?

The constructor for com.mysql.jdbc.PreparedStatement ignores quoted strings inside quoted identifiers, but not the other way around. The result is a failure to detect the ? and the number of parameters is set to zero.

How to repeat:
Create a prepared statement with the afore mentioned query. Then try and set the parameter value. Kaboom! (ArrayIndexOutOfBounds)

Suggested fix:
In the com.mysql.jdbc.PreparedStatement constructor when searching for ?, expand the logic so the quoted id character is NOT recognised when inside a quoted string (the flag for this already exists).

It should also be considered if this problem occurs elsewhere.
