    As long as your frame has a derailleur mount at the dropout. Derailleurs have remained basically unchanged since the advent of indexing in the 6spd era.

    Any Shimano 9sp derailleur will work

    If your frame has the derailleur hanger, instead of the cheaper bolt-on-the-axle type, any 9 speed shimano (deore or better if you have greater than a 30 tooth cassette) rear derailleur will work. It will have more travel than you need but that will be adjusted by the stop screws. The other way around won't work. The 7 speed derailleur just might not have the travel to pull the chain and shift cable over the 8/9 speed cassette width.
