Running the SQL "show engines" results in
"java.sql.SQLException: The statement (1) has no open cursor".

I'm running with: mysql-connector-java-8.0.19 towards a server MySQL 8.0.19.

I have attached a Java program that exemplifies this. The program runs three three queries with and without "useCursorFetch". Running the "show engines" with useCursorFetch = true
fails. See the main for details.

The command "show engines" command is one example of a command that fails. There are other show commands that also fails. E.g. show create procedure.  

How to repeat:
package db;

import java.sql.*;
import java.util.Properties;

public class CursorFetchNotWorking {

private static void runQuery(String query, boolean cursorFetch) {
try {
String myDriver = "com.mysql.jdbc.Driver";
String myUrl = "jdbc:mysql://localhost:3307/";
Properties connectionProps = new Properties();
connectionProps.put("user", "dbvis");
connectionProps.put("password", "dbvis");
connectionProps.put("defaultFetchSize", "5000");
if (cursorFetch) {
connectionProps.put("useCursorFetch", "true");
Connection conn = DriverManager.getConnection(myUrl, connectionProps);
Statement st = conn.createStatement();
System.out.println("Connected:" + conn.getMetaData().getDriverVersion());
ResultSet rs = st.executeQuery(query);

while (rs.next()) {
String col1 = rs.getString(1);
catch (Exception e) {
System.out.println("Got exception: " + e.getMessage());

public static void main(String[] args) {
System.out.println("=== Working");
runQuery("Select 1" , true);

System.out.println("=== NOT Working");
runQuery("show engines" , true);

System.out.println("=== Working");
runQuery("show engines" , false);
