CalculatorLocal is a local business interface, which can be used for calls
where the bean you are calling is in the same JVM as the caller. The remote
business (CalculatorRemote) interface on the other hand will work across
JVMs. You can also specify @Remote and @Local on the same business
interface, but I personally prefer using different interfaces for remote
calls to local ones.

I've never tried having different methods in the different interfaces, but I
can't see why it wouldn't work.

Yes it does.
