The method getYear invoked for type java.util.Date with arguments ()
is deprecated.

What exactly does this mean ??

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 ;-))
