No you don't have to in the new spec. Take a look at this:

Servlet 2.3 used DTD (Document Type Definition) to describe the XML descriptor. DTD needs an ordering in its elements.

Now, the new specification (Servlet 2.4) is using XML Schema to describe the XML, so the ordering is not mandatory.

This change invalidates lots of mock exam questions, regarding the ordering of DD elements!
