Can someone give feedback on controlling change with web services?

Q: If we have a web service running in production with existing users, but we want to add additional optional elements to the request, will this require a coding change for existing users? Or will it be seamless to them?

Here's an article from IBM about web services versioning. It might answer that question and some others you haven't asked yet.
