Hi,I have a class and when I compile the class I get this message but I could not undrestand it :

Note: C:\j2\bin\ uses or overrides a deprecated API.
Note: Recompile with -deprecation for details.

Tool completed successfully

public class BattleStar extends JFrame implements Runnable, MouseListener
//Data Fields

public void BattleStar( ){
public void start( ){

public void stop( ){

public void run( ) {
... }

public void step( )
... }

public void mouseClicked (MouseEvent theEvent) {

public void mouseEntered (MouseEvent theEvent) { }
public void mouseExited (MouseEvent theEvent) { }
public void mousePressed (MouseEvent theEvent) { }
public void mouseReleased(MouseEvent theEvent) { }

public final synchronized void update(Graphics g)

public void paint(Graphics g)
{... }

This is a warning, not an error, and you can safely ignore it for now.

A "deprecated" method is one that Sun recommends you don't use in new code, because a better replacement exists. If you use the -deprecation switch, as advised, you'll get more details about exactly what deprecated method you're using. If you look at the Javadoc for that method, it will tell you what the replacement is.
