It means that thse methods are on the way out and Sun wants to tell you so. You should use a Calendar to do this.

Calendar cal = Calendar.getInstance();
cal.setTime(yourDate);
int year = cal.get(Calendar.YEAR);

Deprecated means that you preferably shouldn't use it in new programs. It is not really an error, just a warning.
Calendar.get(Calendar.YEAR) - 1900

CEHJ is right.  However, I don't know of any deprecated items that have actually been removed yet?

Does anybody know of any?

(Just for interest ;-))
