RMI question

Suppose we had an existing RMI server that supported certain method calls.

Then, we upgrade the RMI server. The new interface still includes the same old method calls, but also additional ones.

**Will the old client still be able to communicate with the new RMI server?

My gut tells me you should get something like a incompatible version exception. However, I just tried it on some sample RMI code running in different directories on the same computer and it connected fine.
