I always use the manifest to keep track of version number of my applications. That's a very common use.

Two more usages:

1. Class-Path entry to specify dependency on an external jar. For example, your ejb1-jar.jar depends upon a helper.jar

2. If you are using an application client then you specify the Main-class for the application client jar. Most application server's Application Client Container launch the application client based on the Main-Class attribute
