> Consider below 2 schemas:
> *Schema 1*:
> {noformat}
> [
>   {
>     "type": "record",
>     "name": "rec1",
>     "fields": [
>       {
>         "name": "age",
>         "type": "long"
>       }
>     ]
>   },
>   {
>     "type": "record",
>     "name": "rec2",
>     "fields": [
>       {
>         "name": "username",
>         "type": "string"
>       }
>     ]
>   }
> ]
> {noformat}
> *Schema 2*:
> {noformat}
> [
>   {
>     "type": "record",
>     "name": "rec1",
>     "fields": [
>       {
>         "name": "age",
>         "type": "long"
>       },
>       {
>         "name": "address",
>         "type": "string"
>       }
>     ]
>   },
>   {
>     "type": "record",
>     "name": "rec2",
>     "fields": [
>       {
>         "name": "username",
>         "type": "string"
>       }
>     ]
>   }
> ]
> {noformat}
> The {{rec1}} field in these 2 unions are not compatible, because the {{address}} field
of {{rec1}} in the second one is not nullable. However, if we check them with validate like
below, validator doesn't return any error:
> {code}
>     final SchemaValidator backwardValidator = new SchemaValidatorBuilder().canReadStrategy().validateLatest();
>     final Schema schema1 = new Schema.Parser().parse(schema1Str);
>     final Schema schema2 = new Schema.Parser().parse(schema2Str);
>     backwardValidator.validate(schema2, Arrays.asList(schema1));
> {code}
