How to mark as deprectated?

How to I show something to be deprecated? I've got some class A, with some method getIndex(), and I want to declare it to be deprecated. Can't seem to find out how to do it.

The your javadoc comment section directly before the method signature should look like:

Just add the @deprecated tag, and when the compiler compiles it will let you know that you are using deprecated methods. But you have to keep in mind that since a method is deprecated, that is doing nothing to stop someone from using it.
Hope this helps.

Really, just the javadoc comment? That's too obvious! I can't belive it. I was staring right at it. Thanks.
