DEPRECATED API

if i make this declaration:
StringBufferInputStream cadena=new StringBufferInputStream ("TEXTO A ANALIZAR");

the message is:
the file.java is using a deprecated API

What can i do? I need to analize a String but my program (JLex) has a constructor in which you have to pass an InputStream.
I´ve done this question previously and i´ve been recommend to use a StringBufferInputStream variable, but if i do it the messega is i´m using a deprecated API

SONIA, let's first be clear on what a deprecated API warning means.

A deprecated API is a warning that the class or method used was part of JDK (Java Development Kit) 1.0, that has been superceded by a better class or method. The JDK you are using still supports the superceded class or method, but the deprecation warning indicates that a future JDK may not.

So, if the life of your project is short, or even medium, the warning can safely be ignored. It is only if you are creating production software, something that will have to stay current for years to come, that you need to seriously consider what to do about this.

Your case is complicated by the fact that the LEX package is expecting certain things. The class that supercedes StringBufferInputStream is StringReader. It, however, is not an InputStream. So if you want to use the recommended class, you will have to obtain an updated version of LEX.

SONIA, I'm pasting the comment from another Q of your since this comment will help here as well:
-------------------
If you want to get rid of the deprecation warning use:
ByteArrayInputStream cadena=new ByteArrayInputStream((new String("<TXT>TEXTO A
 ANALIZAR</TXT>")).getBytes());
The ByteArrayInputStream is also an input stream and will do for your problem as well. I think that it should remove the deprecation warnings, and will work with the LEX.

If i do that it tells me that class String doesn´t have a method
getBytes()

Yes, the signature for getBytes is actually:

public void getBytes(int srcBegin,int srcEnd,bytes dst[],int dstBegin);

So it should rewritten to something like:

String ls=new String("<TXT>TEXTO A ANALIZAR</TXT>");
bytes dt[]=new bytes[ls.length()];
ls.getBytes(0,ls.length,dt,0);
ByteArrayInputStream cadena=new ByteArrayInputStream(dt);

Right, I had a small mistake there.   :-)
The correct version should enable you to work with the javalex.
