TimeUnit toSeconds() method in Java with Examples

  • Last Updated : 15 Oct, 2018

The toSeconds() method of TimeUnit Class is used to get the time represented by the TimeUnit object, as the number of Seconds, since midnight UTC on the 1st January 1970.

Syntax:

public long toSeconds(long duration)

Parameters: This method accepts a mandatory parameter duration which is the duration in milliSeconds.

Return Value: This method returns the converted duration as Seconds.

Below programt illustrate the implementation of TimeUnit toSeconds() method:



Program 1:




// Java program to demonstrate
// toSeconds() method of TimeUnit Class
  
import java.util.concurrent.*;
import java.util.Date;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Get current time in milliseconds
        long timeInMilliSec = new Date().getTime();
  
        // Create a TimeUnit object
        TimeUnit time = TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS;
  
        // Convert milliseconds to Seconds
        // using toSeconds() method
        System.out.println("Time " + timeInMilliSec
                           + " milliSeconds in Seconds = "
                           + time.toSeconds(timeInMilliSec));
    }
}
Output:
Time 1539585656193 milliSeconds in Seconds = 1539585656

Program 2:




// Java program to demonstrate
// toSeconds() method of TimeUnit Class
  
import java.util.concurrent.*;
import java.util.Calendar;
  
class GFG {
    public static void main(String args[])
    {
        // Get current time in milliseconds
        long timeInMilliSec = Calendar
                                  .getInstance()
                                  .getTimeInMillis();
  
        // Create a TimeUnit object
        TimeUnit time = TimeUnit.MILLISECONDS;
  
        // Convert milliseconds to Seconds
        // using toSeconds() method
        System.out.println("Time " + timeInMilliSec
                           + " milliSeconds in Seconds = "
                           + time.toSeconds(timeInMilliSec));
    }
}
Output:
Time 1539585659342 milliSeconds in Seconds = 1539585659
