Does the manifest file in META-INF folder has any significance w.r.to. deployment ?
I could not get where it is being used.
When WAR/EAR is creted this would be automatically created by the build tool ?
Please explain in detail.

Manifest is the link point between enterprize tiers, eg. if your EAR is made up of 3 WAR and 2 JAR, then that dependencey is written in Manifest. it is extremely critical while deployment.

Does the container looks into this file for info regarding any such dependencies ?
Who creates this file ?
