The minusSeconds() method of OffsetDateTime class in Java returns a copy of this OffsetDateTime with the specified number of seconds subtracted from the parsed date and time.

Syntax:

public OffsetDateTime minusSeconds(long seconds)

Parameter: This method accepts a single parameter seconds which specifies the seconds to be subtracted from the parsed date. It can be negative also, in that case, it adds the number of seconds to it.

Return Value: It returns an OffsetDateTime based on this date-time with the seconds subtracted and not null.

Exceptions: The program throws a DateTimeException when it exceeds the supported data and time range.

Below programs illustrate the minusSeconds() method:

Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate the minusSeconds() method
  
import java.time.OffsetDateTime;
import java.time.ZonedDateTime;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Parses the date1
        OffsetDateTime date1
            = OffsetDateTime
                  .parse("2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00");
  
        // Prints dates
        System.out.println("Date1: " + date1);
  
        // Subtracts the number of seconds
        System.out.println("Date1 after subtracting seconds: "
                           + date1.minusSeconds(-120));
    }
}
Output:
Date1: 2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
Date1 after subtracting seconds: 2018-12-12T13:32:30+05:00

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate the minusSeconds() method
  
import java.time.OffsetDateTime;
import java.time.ZonedDateTime;
  
public class GFG {
    public static void main(String[] args)
    {
  
        // Parses the date1
        OffsetDateTime date1
            = OffsetDateTime
                  .parse("2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00");
  
        // Prints dates
        System.out.println("Date1: " + date1);
  
        // Subtracts the number of seconds
        System.out.println("Date1 after subtracting seconds: "
                           + date1.minusSeconds(140));
    }
}
Output:
Date1: 2018-12-12T13:30:30+05:00
Date1 after subtracting seconds: 2018-12-12T13:28:10+05:00
