ZonedDateTime minusMonths() method in Java with Examples

minusMonths() method of a ZonedDateTime class used to subtracts the number of months in this ZonedDateTime and return a copy of ZonedDateTime after subtraction. This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Syntax:

public ZonedDateTime minusMonths(long months)

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



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

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

        // print instance
        System.out.println("ZonedDateTime before"
                           + " subtracting months: "
                           + zoneddatetime);
  
        // subtract 10 months
        ZonedDateTime returnvalue
            = zoneddatetime.minusMonths(10);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("ZonedDateTime after "
                           + " subtracting 10 months: "
                           + returnvalue);
    }
}

Output:

ZonedDateTime before subtracting months: 2018-12-06T19:21:12.123+05:30[Asia/Calcutta]
ZonedDateTime after subtracting 10 months: 2018-02-06T19:21:12.123+05:30[Asia/Calcutta]
