Deprecated method error

I am using a method URLEncoder.encode to pass a URL to a "shopping cart". Tomcat 4.1.31 gacks on the compile and displays the following message.

usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.31/work/Standalone/localhost/BooksWeb/ cannot resolve symbol
symbol : method encode (int)
location: class

Note: /usr/local/jakarta-tomcat-4.1.31/work/Standalone/localhost/BooksWeb/ uses or overrides a deprecated API.
Note: Recompile with -deprecation for details.

Can anyone point me to where I might find a method that has replaced URLEncoder.encode()?

Thanks, Steve

Found a solution. Formatted the url as a string and compiled ok.
