Dimitris ,

I am bit confused after reading the Forum Reference (http://www.jboss.com/index.html?module=bb&op=viewtopic&t=78376&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=20) mentioned in that JIRA. 

In one of the posts in that forum reference, you mention that 

anonymous wrote : Maybe a simpler/better solution is to add in jboss-app.xml a new tag:
  | <module-order>implicit|strict</module-order>
  | with 'implicit' being the legacy behaviour, and 'strict' work by simply putting the the application.xml & jboss-app.xml modules in that order.
  | If modules from the 2 descriptors need to be arbitrarily mixed (e.g. a -ds.xml before an ejb jar), they can always be moved to jboss-app.xml (we already support this).
  | The only restriction is a module must appear only once in the 2 descriptors.
  | This is essentially the same with adding a new list (like unified-order) but we reuse the existing one, and add the extra flag to specify what we want.
  | On the other hand, I would argue that 'strict' should be the default, which is the "correct" behaviour, especially in the absence of a jboss-app.xml descriptor. If an old deployment gets broken, they can simply add the 'implicit' flag. 

1) Has this been implemented, in the jboss-app dtd at http://www.jboss.org/j2ee/dtd/jboss-app_4_0.dtd i could not find a mention about this.

2) Considering the following entries in application.xml and jboss-app.xml:


  |   <ejb>myEjb.jar</ejb>
  | </module>


  | <module>
  |  <har>myHar.har</har>
  | <module>

Which module will be loaded first when:
 a) module-order is 'strict'
 b) module-order is 'implicit'
