I am new to android. I am using SDK and eclipse with ADT plug-ins for
the first time. I want to know what is the significance of the
AndroidManifest.xml file which is created automatically when we create
an android project. Can we modify this file for any reason?

Thanks n regards,

Yes we can modify, but i think its available to modify.
we can add activities references, user permissions,event receivers.
AndroidMasifest.xml file is same like struts.xml file in struts2.

There is a Web page in the Android documentation that covers this: 

You can modify it when you need to. If you are using Eclipse, it may
make some modifications for you, but other changes you may need to make

 In which cases I can modify this file? I have done some basic android
applications but I didn't modify this file and applications worked
fine. For what reason we should modify this file?

 For the first time when we develop an activity, The eclipse automatically
adds it to
the AndroidManifest.xml. As we want to add more activities or any frame work

We need to add the, we can add permissions, intent filter, etc. also

You should try to post on the android-porting forum, it doesn't seem
