Put /** @deprecated */ before the method declaration.
e.g.
/**
 * There were some comments here.
 * @deprecated
 * @return an int
 */
public int deprecatedMethod() {return 1;}

Simply put the java-doc comment @deprecated before the method signature....ie:

/**
 * @deprecated
*/
public myMethod(...) {


}

I think this is a joke, fi76631. Thanks for your copy-and-past effort.

I will try this tomorrow and grade it then, LDC.
