The java.util.concurrent.atomic.AtomicInteger.decrementAndGet() is an inbuilt method in java that decreases the previous value by one and returns the value after updation which is of data-type int.

Syntax: 

public final int decrementAndGet()

Parameters: The function does not accepts a single parameter. 
Return value: The function returns the value after decrement operation is performed to the previous value. 

Program below demonstrates the function:

Program 1: 

Java




// Java Program to demonstrates
// the decrementAndGet() function
 
import java.util.concurrent.atomic.AtomicInteger;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
 
        // Initially value as 0
        AtomicInteger val
            = new AtomicInteger(0);
 
        System.out.println("Previous value: "
                           + val);
 
        // Decrement and get
        int res
            = val.decrementAndGet();
 
        // Prints the updated value
        System.out.println("Current value: "
                           + res);
    }
}

Output: 

Previous value: 0
Current value: -1

 

Program 2: 

Java




// Java Program to demonstrates
// the decrementAndGet() function
 
import java.util.concurrent.atomic.AtomicInteger;
 
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
 
        // Initially value as 18
        AtomicInteger val
            = new AtomicInteger(18);
 
        System.out.println("Previous value: "
                           + val);
 
        // Decrement and get new value
        int res = val.decrementAndGet();
 
        // Prints the updated value
        System.out.println("Current value: "
                           + res);
    }
}

Output: 

Previous value: 18
Current value: 17
