Do we have to specify the classpaths in MANIFEST.MF file? My server will load all the jar files in the lib directory automatically
w/o using the calsspaths in MANIFEST.MF file.

When and why the Classpaths in MANIFEST.MF file are used? What if there are conflicts between the files list in the classpaths of MANIFEST.MF
and the jars in the lib directory?
