This week's book giveaway is in the OCAJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA Java SE 8 Programmer I Study Guide 1Z0-808 and have Jeanne Boyarsky & Scott Selikoff on-line! See this thread for details.
From the ant manual on war task, blurb on metainf:
The nested metainf element specifies a FileSet. All files included in this fileset will end up in the META-INF directory of the war file. If this fileset includes a file named MANIFEST.MF, the file is ignored and you will get a warning.
