Error description

  • STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    In the Message Editor in Test Factory you can paste XML into the
    text field of a message to
    build the message tree.
    
    You can then apply an XSD schema to this message.
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    After applying the schema, the fields should remain in the same
    order if they already comply with the schema
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    After applying the schema and retaining data the field the order
    has changed. This results in errors when running the test as
    received message field ordering does not match that expected.
    
    WORKAROUND:
    
    Manually change the field order in the Message Editor with the
    Move Up/Move Down right-click options
