ZonedDateTime minusMinutes() method in Java with Examples

minusMinutes() method of a ZonedDateTime class used to subtract the number of minutes from this ZonedDateTime and return a copy of ZonedDateTime after subtraction.This method operates on the instant time-line, such that subtracting one minute will always be a duration of one minute earlier. This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Syntax:

public ZonedDateTime minusMinutes(long minutes)

Parameters: This method accepts a single parameter minutes which represents the minutes to subtract, It can be negative.



Return value: This method returns a ZonedDateTime based on this date-time with the minutes subtracted, not null.

Exception: This method throws DateTimeException if the result exceeds the supported date range.

                           + zoneddatetime);
  
        // subtract 15 minutes
        ZonedDateTime returnvalue
            = zoneddatetime.minusMinutes(15);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("ZonedDateTime after "
                           + " subtracting 15 minutes: "
                           + returnvalue);
    }
}
