You will learn about deprecated annotation in this post.

Deprecated is a standard annotation and itís a marker annotation. We use Deprecated to annotate a method that shouldn't be used anymore. Note: Deprecated should be placed on the same line as the method being deprecated.

Java Code:
package com.domian.a.test;

public class DeprecatedClass {

  @Deprecated public void doSomething() {
    // some code

  public void doSomethingElse() {
    // This method presumably does what doSomething() does, but better
