[javaee-spec users] Is JDBC not included in Web Profile

Hi All,

I was reading through the full platform and Web Profile documents. I
noticed that JDBC was explicitly mentioned in the Platform Spec but was not
present in the Web Profile spec. Is this simply an oversight of the Web
Profile spec or are applications that use JDBC directly not considered
portable in Web Profile? (I had assumed it would be included since it's a
requirement to use JPA).
