How and when @Deprecated annotation is used

@Deprecated are majorly used when

1. API is experimental and likely been subjected to incompatible changes,

2.Error is likely to occur from usage of the API

3. API is obsolete

4. API is flawed and is impractical to fix and few more…
The @Deprecated annotation will cause the compiler to emit an error when invoked,
though many IDEs may also highlight this method as deprecated

class ComplexAI {
    @Deprecated
    public void fastSlowAI() {
// stuff here
    }

    public void quickFastAI() {
// client code should use this instead
    }
}
