Well, they're interfaces, so the only differences are the names and signatures of the methods. Iterator has shorter method names, which don't clutter your code as much, and it has the "remove()" method, which Enumeration lacks. That's it.

Enumeration is not deprecated, it is merely discouraged. It's the same as Vector vs ArrayList.
