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.
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 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]
ZonedDateTime before subtracting seconds: 2018-10-25T23:12:31.123+02:00[Europe/Paris]
ZonedDateTime after subtracting -22 seconds: 2018-10-25T23:12:53.123+02:00[Europe/Paris]
