Hi I have some questions which are still not very clear to me !
1. What is the manifest file ? 2. Why do we need the manifest file? 3. Is it mandatory to have it ? 4. When does it get created ( i mean we certainly don't write it in a text editor, it must be getting generated automatically) 5. What is the use of META-INF folder ? 6. Do we have to create explicitly for a web application and is it mandatory?

Hi, If you are deploying your app as a .war file then that war will have a manifest file in which you can specify the dependencies(means any libraries your app needs).
The META-INF in your jar can have tag files under META-INF/tags directory etc etc.
Best thing to do is make a war file out of your web application and you will get the answer of all your questions.
Hope that helps.
