In general appContext/META-INF/MANIFEST.MF automatically created when we generate WAR file. So do we some times modify MANIFEST.MF? if yes why?

It's usually for Meta Information such as the Vendor, the version number of your web app etc, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manifest_file

Manifest should be always edited, this file is used to create a classpath of your application, so you can write the reference of all yous libs there. It�s much better then put in the WEB-INF/lib because if you have more then one application using the same lib you are spending your hard disk. Also, creating a reference when you change the version of this lib, all of your applications will change as well without create new WAR.
