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 :-)
