    SQL Developer 4.1.1 connect returns "invalid connection string format"


      The "invalid connection string format" error is returned, while trying to connect, using sql developer, using JDK 1.8.0_51 on a Win 7 x64 environment.


      The exact same connection credentials, on the same Win 7 x64 OS, proceeds without any error using sql developer, using JDK 1.7.0_80


      Credentials used were basic, default, with Service name (not SID), and no special authentication.


      This problem is reproduced when installed on another Win 7 platform.
