Please have a look at java docs..

This is from java docs.

public int getYear()Deprecated. As of JDK version 1.1, replaced by Calendar.get(Calendar.YEAR) - 1900.

Returns a value that is the result of subtracting 1900 from the year that contains or begins with the instant in time represented by this Date object, as interpreted in the local time zone.

Read the java docs when you're having a problem with a method in the API?!
