    Default Deprecation in assert?

    In java it is saying my assertEquals method is deprecated, what does this mean?

    I'm trying to make a test method, and its literally crossing out the assertEquals.

    Why not look at the latest API for the classes and methods you are using - it will tell you faster than anyone of us can. I presume you are using JUnit?

    yes, im using JUnit.

    i have assertEquals("failure", double, method)

    Where failure is the console text if the method doesnt work
    Double is a number
    and the method is an object calling a getter method.

    I don't see why I would be getting deprecated.

    I don't see why I would be getting deprecated.
    Again, read my post above. The API should explicitly state the method as deprecated, and possibly suggest alternatives.
