    Description

      Many built-in URL Handlers perform additional syntax checking on the URL when URLStreamHandler::openConnection / connect is called. In some cases, some of these checks could be also performed earlier, when URLStreamHandler::parseURL is called.

      Because URLStreamHandler::parseURL is called during URL construction, throwing a MalformedURLException in parseURL would avoid letting the caller construct an URL that will later fail when invoking URL::openConnection.
