Ordering of elements in XML has to be preserved.According to the dtd published on the Sun site, it is always security-constraint followed by security-role. <!ELEMENT web-app (icon?, display-name?, description?, distributable?, context-param*, filter*, filter-mapping*, listener*, servlet*, servlet-mapping*, session-config?, mime-mapping*, welcome-file-list?, error-page*, taglib*, resource-env-ref*, resource-ref*, security-constraint*,login-config?, security-role*, env-entry*, ejb-ref*, ejb-local-ref*)> web-app_2_3.dtd can be downloaded from http://java.sun.com/dtd/
