My method appends a String to the end of a URL via the encode() method to enable someone to search the Internet.
Compiling 1 source file to C:\Documents and Settings\Serge\film_titles\build\classes
C:\Documents and Settings\Serge\film_titles\src\film_titles\ warning: [deprecation] encode(java.lang.String) in has been deprecated
url += URLEncoder.encode(keyword);
1 warning

Is there an equivalent new method to do the same job?
