How to handle a library class or method that is obsolete ?
I don't think we can just remove from our library application or send an email to all of developer.
What is the best way to handle it?
Thanks

You need to check the JavaDocs. Usually JavaDocs tell you the new method that is replacing the deprecated or obsolete one.

Mark it deprecated, eventually remove it, and put it in the release notes as something that breaks backwards compatibility once it's removed.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
