Instant minusSeconds() method in Java

Java 8Object Oriented ProgrammingProgramming

An immutable copy of a instant where some seconds are subtracted from it can be obtained using the minusSeconds() method in the Instant class in Java. This method requires a single parameter i.e. the number of seconds to be subtracted and it returns the instant with the subtracted seconds.

A program that demonstrates this is given as follows −

Example

 Live Demo

import java.time.*;
public class Demo {
   public static void main(String[] args) {
      Instant i = Instant.now();
      System.out.println("The current instant is: " + i);
      System.out.println("An instant with 10 seconds subtracted is: " + i.minusSeconds(10));
   }
}

Output

The current instant is: 2019-02-12T12:29:46.262Z
An instant with 10 seconds subtracted is: 2019-02-12T12:29:36.262Z

Now let us understand the above program.

First the current instant is displayed. Then an immutable copy of the instant where 10 seconds are subtracted is obtained using the minusSeconds() method and this is displayed. A code snippet that demonstrates this is as follows −

Instant i = Instant.now();
System.out.println("The current instant is: " + i);
System.out.println("An instant with 10 seconds subtracted is: " + i.minusSeconds(10));
