META-INF is used to store the meta-information about the project.Eor example, if u r zipping/jaring lot of classes, u can have main class name listed in META-INF.

You can also list dependencies in MANIFEST.MF in the META-INF directory.
If any of these are missing, this will ensure that the app will fail at deploy time, rather that at some point later when a user uses the part of the app that needs the dependencies that aren't there.
