Order is certainly relevant in SOAP. The fact that some implementations have
used the <all/> construct rather than <sequence/> doesn't mean that SOAP
waives the rules of XSD.

Subject: Heads up: A key difference between SOAP and XML-RPC


After a little head-bashing and then smoke-clearing, this became apparent.
 
1. In SOAP, procedures take named parameters and order is irrelevant.
 
2. In XML-RPC order is relevant and parameters are not named.
