Is the database selection necessary, or is that implied with a SELECT or
other SQL command?
It depends on the database (as you have seen in many of the responses),
but there is a way to keep from doing this if the database is ANSI
compliant using proper SQL syntax;
SELECT a.foo, a.bar
FROM myDatabase.myTable a
WHERE you set other conditions here
All that is required is that you establish a connection to a server.
If I recall correctly, this will cause issues with replication in
MySQL... insofar as you perform amodifying query.
