As pointed out during the Paris 2011 Users' Meeting, a single Java client which would like to make connections to multiple servers with different versions either has to manage duplicate jars via smart class loading or perhaps introduce their own remote API and wrap each server.
During the discussing with Curtis (OME/ImageJ), Fabrice (Icy), Christian (Knime), Jean-Marie (OME) and Josh (OME), various parts of the problem were discussed. The immediate goal was not to allow connection to multiple versions from a single JVM, but to simplify the work needed on the client/plugin developers part to keep up with multiple versions.
