    Default Deprecated functions

    Hi everyone.

    I'm developing a web page right now and
    i'm using Date class for some inputs in my page.

    I'm just a little curious if is it appropriate to
    use a deprecated functions in some
    classes?

    I need to use getYear, setDate and some other
    methods that are deprecated.

    is it appropriate to use these deprecated methods?
    are there any alternative ways of getting year and setting date
    in such a way that I will not use deprecated methods?

    -- sorry, I'm just new in java development.

    It is not appropriate to use deprecated API's. If you read javadoc for the deprecated API there would be an alternative suggested. Better use the alternative suggested as any bug fixes or improvements won't be available for deprecated API's.
