This is an optional name for the connection to be opened. If you need to have multiple connections opened at once, you will need to specify a connection name. For those implementations that do not support multiple connections, this argument is not supported.

This is the name used to connect to the database.

This is the password associated with the username.

This is the name that the database to which connection is required is known.
