Why is JDBC a part of J2EE?
We have loads of applications using JDBC that have nothing to do with J2EE.
JDBC is covered in the Connectivity objectives but still is part of J2EE stack of technologies.

It depends on what you think. I think JDBC and Entity Beans are the only ways for applications to connect to a data source, and thus, for the connectivity issues, JDBC is a must.
In fact, now, JDBC is specified in J2SE 1.4, not in J2EE anymore.
