Attempting to connect to the JDBC driver using the following syntax:
where connString is a simple jdbc string (e.g. "jdbc:mysql://MyServer:3306/myDb") and props is a java.util.Properties containing the user name ("user" = "root") and password ("password" = MyPassword).
Returns an error about unable to connect, stating that USE PASSWORD = NO, which seems incorrect given my specification of a password.
Supplying the user name and password directly in the connection string ("...?user=root&password=MyPassword") gives the same behavior
