I have a frame window with super class Frame. My frame contains a canvas and when the cursor moves over the canvas, I want it to change to the hand cursor. I did this by calling Cursor canvasCursor = new Cursor(HAND_CURSOR); myCanvas.setCursor(canvasCursor); This works, but when I compile I get the following warning: "NOTE: The variable HAND_CURSOR in class java.awt.Frame has been deprecated." It tells me to consult the documentation for a better alternative. The documentation, however, does NOT list this variable as deprecated. Any ideas?
