"java's date(…) constructor is deprecated; what does that mean?" Code Answer


deprecated literally means disapproved of, but a more accurate translation would be retired. deprecated means this method is still usable, but you should not use it. it will gradually be phased out. there is a new method to do the same thing. deprecated methods are marked with a special javadoc comment:

 *@deprecated please now use newmethod()
 *@see newmethod()


  • calendar.set(year + 1900, month, date, hrs, min)


  • gregoriancalendar(year + 1900, month, date, hrs, min).

as suggested by the api documentation.
