Parameter(s):

  • long day_val – represents the days to be subtracted from this Duration.

Return value:

The return type of this method is Duration, it returns the Duration that holds the value subtracted the given days from this Duration.

Example:

// Java program to demonstrate the example 
// of minusDays(long day_val) method of Duration

import java.time.*;
public class MinusDaysOfDuration {
    public static void main(String args[]) {
        long days = 2;

        // Instantiates two Duration objects
        Duration du1 = Duration.ofDays(3);
        Duration du2 = Duration.parse("P2DT20M");

        // Display du1, du2 
        System.out.println("du1: " + du1);
        System.out.println("du2: " + du2);

        System.out.println();

        // substracts the given duration
        // in days from this Duration du1 and returns
        // the Duration i.e. here we are substracting
        // the given 2 days from this du1 that holds
        // the value of 3 days i.e.( 72 hrs - 48 hrs
        // = 24 hrs )
        Duration minus_val = du1.minusDays(days);

        // Display minus_val
        System.out.println("du1.minusDays(days): " + minus_val);

        // substracts the given duration
        // in days from this Duration du1 and returns
        // the Duration i.e. here we are substracting
        // the given 2 days from this du2 that holds
        // the value of 2 days: 20 minutes 
        // i.e.( 48 hrs - 48 hrs
        // = 0 hrs )
        minus_val = du2.minusDays(days);

        // Display minus_val
        System.out.println("du2.minusDays(days): " + minus_val);
    }
}

Output

du1: PT72H
du2: PT48H20M

du1.minusDays(days): PT24H
du2.minusDays(days): PT20M
