I am working on a j2ee project. In my EJB project there is a MANIFEST.MF file. Is this file automatically generated by IDE ? If I want to make a third party .jar that I added at the application level to be accessed by this EJB project, shall I manually modify this MANIFEST.MF file of EJB project ??

Usually you want to create a EAR file and place the third-party JAR file in the EAR's lib directory.

This seems more like an EJB question to me than an IDE question. But I'll see where this discussion goes before moving it.

I agree. Here's the link:
