I am using JavaParser (japa) binary jar file which is licensed under LGPL in my program and also WebLookAndFeel binary jar file which is licensed under GPL. Please answer these questions:

  1. Am I required to distribute source code of my own application if I am using jar library in my program which is licensed under LGPL.
  2. Am I required to distribute source code of my own application if I am using jar library in my program which is licensed under GPL.

I am confused what does these licenses conclude.
