    I don't see why not. GLADE is for GTK apps and the last time I checked, GTK could be used freely to develop proprietary applications.

    Question

    GTK comes with LGPL license, whereas GLADE comes with GPL license !
    Therefore, by any way should applications developed with GLADE be open sourced?

    Creating an application with GPLed tools does not necessarily mean that the application has to be GPLed. The exception to this is if you are using GPLed source code in the application you are developing. If you are still unsure of whether its ok to use GLADE to create proprietary apps, contact the GLADE devs and ask them.
