What is mean by manifest files ?

The manifest file is named MANIFEST.MF. In Java ,a manifest file is a specific file contained within a JAR file.

 It is a meta data file that contains name-value pairs organized in different sections.

 If a JAR file is intended to be used as an executable file, the manifest file specifies the main class of the application.
