Originally when we rolling out the content for core-libs pages I had 
sent JDBC info for inclusion on that page last March.  It made sense as 
I dotted line report into the core libs manager.

It was decided in previous discussions that JDBC did not warrant its 
own  group on OpenJDK and why i had sent the info for inclusion on the 
core libs page.

This is a core Java API as everything talks to a database so it should 
have a voice/home in OpenJDK :-)
