    Does the deprecated method have any JavaDoc with it that gives a suggestion of what has replaced it? Perhaps check the JavaDoc online for the JDK you're using.

    That's an old AWT event listener callback. From Java 1.0! Did you find this project in a museum?

    The Swing version of that method is:
    public void mousePressed(MouseEvent e) {
    	int x = e.getX();
    	int y = e.getY();
    The other one is mouseReleased(MouseEvent e).

    My gut tells me there are dozens of other deprecated method usages in that project as well. Sounds like a nasty chore. If you have to convert the entire application over to using Swing, then I'd strongly consider whether starting from a new Swing project would make more sense.
