This is because you are compiling the old version source with new
java version java. In java 1.3 There are new functions for some old functions they are all deprecated. Still you will not get any
errors but it will suggest you to use the new functions which will be more efficient.

it will vary version to version in java...

just compile with the keyword -deprecation and find out which
deprecated function you are using in your code and then find out the right function and replace the deprecated functions with the new one.
