In which way this META-INF folder is used. is TLD files should be in this folder?

"Stuff" is placed in different folders depending on what the specification is. For instance, in JARs, the manifest is in the meta-inf directory. If you write the new tag files in JSP 2.0, and actually compile them to distribute as a JAR, those compiled classes are placed somewhere in the meta-inf directory as I remember.
So, its significance: it's used. By what? That should be your question. But don't ask it. (I don't like open-ended questions .. go research.)
