Basically most of the new users in Java are not aware of the term "Deprecated" in Java. In Java it is used in the context of API documents and the meaning of the deprecated in Java is "sort of obsolete". If a method is javadoc'd or interpreted as deprecated then it depicts that at some point it may disappear from API. However, actually it does not disappear and it is still there for some time. In fact it is the indication of what the preferred replacement is. Therefore, if you are a new user of Java then do not use deprecated in any code. If you use it then at some point you need to rework on it.

According to the Java Documentation: A program element annotated @Deprecated is one that programmers are discouraged from using, typically because it is dangerous, or because a better alternative exists. Similarly, when a class or method is deprecated, it means that the class or method is no longer considered important. It is so unimportant, in fact, that it should no longer be used at all, as it might well cease to exist in the future.
