Can't find "login-path" parameter to be used in jdbc connection to take advantage of native encrypted password in mysql 5.6.6 and above.

mysql Perl Client can easily connect using only "login-path", no open password required!

How to repeat:
I didn't find way to replace user/password with "login-path" :

    conn =
       DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost/test?" +

Suggested fix:

    conn =
       DriverManager.getConnection("jdbc:mysql://localhost/test?" +
