ZonedDateTime minusSeconds() method in Java with Examples

minusSeconds() method of a ZonedDateTime class used to subtract the number of seconds from this ZonedDateTime and return a copy of ZonedDateTime after subtraction.This method works on the instant time-line and subtracting one-second returns the time-line of one second earlier. Note that this method is a different approach to that used by days, months and years. This instance is immutable and unaffected by this method call.

Syntax:

public ZonedDateTime minusSeconds(long seconds)

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

Return value: This method returns a ZonedDateTime based on this date-time with the seconds subtracted.

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

Below programs illustrate the minusSeconds() method:

        ZonedDateTime zoneddatetime
            = ZonedDateTime.parse(

        // print instance
        System.out.println("ZonedDateTime before"
                           + " subtracting seconds: "
                           + zoneddatetime);
  
        // subtract 100 seconds
        ZonedDateTime returnvalue
            = zoneddatetime.minusSeconds(100);
  
        // print result
        System.out.println("ZonedDateTime after "
                           + " subtracting 100 seconds: "
                           + returnvalue);
    }
}

Output:

ZonedDateTime before subtracting seconds: 2018-12-06T19:21:12.123+05:30[Asia/Calcutta]
ZonedDateTime after subtracting 100 seconds: 2018-12-06T19:19:32.123+05:30[Asia/Calcutta]
