Hello,


The license information is mandatory in order to follow legal rules. We can not remove it.

Hi Katherine,


Our client as one of a leading bank (CIMB Niaga Bank), use an open source it's not comfort for them.

Or cn we hide it?

Hello,


We cannot hide or remove it. Since we are using it, we (and by extension, you) have to comply to the licence requirements, notably for the Apache Licence v2.0 :

4. Redistribution. You may reproduce and distribute copies of the Work or Derivative Works thereof in any medium, with or without
modifications, and in Source or Object form, provided that You
meet the following conditions
:


(a) You must give any other recipients of the Work or
Derivative Works a copy of this License; and


(b) You must cause any modified files to carry prominent notices
stating that You changed the files; and [...]

Sorry this causes you trouble, but there is no way around this.


As a side note about the inclusion of open-source software and libraries as a security issue, this is kind of a hot topic and subject to debate, I suggest you consult this Wikipedia page and the related sources.


Bottom line is that open source is not necessarily a problem, a contrario it can lead to actually increased security.

Furthermore, since we are using these libs anyway, it's probably not a good idea to "hide" the fact that we are to your clients.


I hope you understand.


Kind regards,

Kevin
