Result is the duration obtained by subtracting datetime2 (second argument) from datetime1 (first argument). The result can be mapped to a string, or duration, datatype.


Note that the arrivaldatetime has been connected to datetime1 and departuredatetime to datetime2.


E.g. We want to find the difference, as a duration, between the departure and arrival times.

datetime1 arrivaldatetime="2001-12-17T19:30:02+05:00"

datetime2 departuredatetime="2001-12-17T09:30:02+05:00"


Result: the difference between the two is 10 hours:

result= PT10H
