This Sun tutorial may help...
Basically the inclusion of the file is optional depending on what you are try to do. However, many packaging tools often generate one anyway. It can be used for securing a jar, specifying class path dependencies of the jar's contents, specifying the default main class to be able to start the jar app with the command 'java -jar myapp.jar', and other things.
