Man oh man, you're really krank. It doesn't matter how you label computer
program works ("application" vs "library" is utterly irrelevant) which work 
together in combination. In MySQL v. Progress, the Gemini (transactional 
storage engine) was a "library" (used by MySQL and statically linked to the 
MySQL code), not "application". 

To quote Judge Saris,

-----
With respect to the General Public License (“GPL”), MySQL has not 
demonstrated a substantial likelihood of success on the merits or 
irreparable harm. Affidavits submitted by the parties’ experts raise 
a factual dispute concerning whether the Gemini program is a 
derivative or an independent and separate work under GPL ¶ 2.

So MySQL lost and didn't get an injunction.
