Description:
Hi

I am developing GUI database manager and I need to connect mysql database by using empty database parameter. Today I downloaded nightly snapshot and unfortunately it did't work like earlier versions. The snapshot produces SQLException if I do not specify database in connection string. This is new bug in Connector/J 3.1-nightly-2004042. I have succesfully used earlier versions of Connector/J 3.0.10 and 3.1.1-alpha.

Stacktrace:
------------

java.sql.SQLException: Malformed URL 'jdbc:mysql://localhost:3306/?user=root&password=root&maxRows=0&profileSQL=false&connectTimeout=60000&allowLoadLocalInfile=true&continueBatchOnError=true&strictUpdates=true&useCompression=false&paranoid=true&allowMultiQueries=true&requireSSL=false&useSSL=false&socketTimeout=0&useUnicode=false&characterEncoding&useTimezone=false'.

How to repeat:
Just try to connect without specifying database parameter in connection string:
            
Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost/?user=monty&password=greatsqldb");
