I have a concern if I use the Open JDK that my application will have to be converted to
a GNU License

From the GNU site.

You have a GPL'd program that I'd like to link with my code to build a proprietary program. Does the fact that I link with your program mean I have to GPL my program?
Yes.

This is a common misconception and the reason we have added
the Classpath Exception. Please see the FAQ:
