This means that in the current version of the JDK, the particular constructor you are using //..= new Date()// is outdated (deprecated in Java jargon) - meaning, it is no longer supported in the current version, and was supported only in some older version.
That is a warning to stop using that constructor. Download and use the latest JDK documentation/API.
Earlier, Date used to have many different types of constructors. Most of them are deprecated now (you need to use either 'Calendar' or 'DateFormat' classes).
