Code sample

Java

Before trying this sample, follow the Java setup instructions in the BigQuery Quickstart Using Client Libraries. For more information, see the BigQuery Java API reference documentation.

public static void implicit() {
  // Instantiate a client. If you don't specify credentials when constructing a client, the
  // client library will look for credentials in the environment, such as the
  // GOOGLE_APPLICATION_CREDENTIALS environment variable.
  BigQuery bigquery = BigQueryOptions.getDefaultInstance().getService();

  // Use the client.
  System.out.println("Datasets:");
  for (Dataset dataset : bigquery.listDatasets().iterateAll()) {
    System.out.printf("%s%n", dataset.getDatasetId().getDataset());
  }
}

Node.js
