ChronoZonedDateTime toEpochSecond() method in Java with Examples
The toEpochSecond() method of a ChronoZonedDateTime interface is used to convert this ChronoZonedDateTime to the number of seconds since the epoch of 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z. The method combines this ChronoZonedDateTime with the offset passed as parameters to calculate the epoch-second value, which is the number of elapsed seconds from 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z. Instants on the timeline after the epoch are positive, earlier are negative.
default long toEpochSecond()
Parameters: This method do not accepts any parameter.
Return value: This method returns long which is the number of seconds since the epoch of 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z, may be negative.
Below programs illustrate the toEpochSecond() method:
