    I had developed a Java application which is connected to MySQL Workbench by using mysql-connector-java-8.0.21.jar file. When I deploy the project and send source code to the client he says that:

    The license must not have a licensed GNU/ GPL / Unspecified that has a disclosure obligation (it is okay to have MIT / BSD / Apache without a disclosure obligation)
    Change the GNU/GPL licence to MIT or BSD
    Now my question is, how to change the licence of the project or how to change the licence of library files like Mysql connector.jar.

    Because I need a open source licence for the source code, So I need to change the licence libraries (used in project).
