Sorry Bassam, but I don't agree. According to Servlet spec 2.4, SRV.13.4: "1. web-app Element ... All sub elements under this element can be in an arbitrary order."
So the order doesn't matter under <web-app>
I agree with u Jose... I guess, this order thing has been made lenient starting from servlet spec 2.4. so, we can have elements within in any arbitary order... unless, u know that the order matters to u... like in the case of ordering of filter DD elements...
