If you look closely at the Date#getYear API, you'll see that this method is deprecated. You'll also find the answer of your question there.

As Christophe suggested you can find in the api that the method is deprecated and which method took it's place. And that's your answer.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
