  • Yes for java scripts app this field is mandatory.its specifies entry point to your app.for more details follow the link

    Specifies the name of the default launch HTML page for the app.This file must be present in the app package. If you specify this property, you can’t specify both the Entry Point and Executable properties. This property appears only for JavaScript projects.
