I come from the C# world, so not too experienced with Java yet. I was just told by Eclipse that Date was deprecated:

Person p = new Person();

p.setDateOfBirth(new Date(1985, 1, 1));

Why? And what (especially in cases like above) should be used instead?

The specific Date constructor is deprecated, and Calendar should be used instead. The JavaDoc for Date describes which constructors are deprecated and how to replace them using a Calendar
