@XmlType Annotation - xs:all

Guideline: Avoid using XmlType(propOrder=:{}).

@XmlType(propOrder={}) maps a Java class to an XML Schema complex type with xs:all content model. Since XML Schema places severe restrictions on xs:all, the use of @XmlType(propOrder={}) is therefore not recommended. So, the following example shows the mapping of a Java class to xs:all, but the corresponding .NET code generated by svcutil is omitted.

Example: Mapping a class to xs:all using @XmlType

//-- Java code fragment
public class USAddress {
    public String name;
    public String street;

//-- Schema fragment
<xs:complexType name="USAddress">
        <xs:element name="name" type="xs:string"/>
        <xs:element name="street" type="xs:string"/>
