// Sample to queries an external data source aws s3 using a permanent table
public class QueryExternalTableAws {

  public static void main(String[] args) throws InterruptedException {
    // TODO(developer): Replace these variables before running the sample.
    String projectId = "MY_PROJECT_ID";
    String datasetName = "MY_DATASET_NAME";
    String externalTableName = "MY_EXTERNAL_TABLE_NAME";
    // Query to find states starting with 'W'
    String query =
            "SELECT * FROM s%.%s.%s WHERE name LIKE 'W%%'",
            projectId, datasetName, externalTableName);

  public static void queryExternalTableAws(String query) throws InterruptedException {
    try {
      // Initialize client that will be used to send requests. This client only needs to be created
      // once, and can be reused for multiple requests.
      BigQuery bigquery = BigQueryOptions.getDefaultInstance().getService();

      TableResult results = bigquery.query(QueryJobConfiguration.of(query));

          .forEach(row -> row.forEach(val -> System.out.printf("%s,", val.toString())));

      System.out.println("Query on aws external permanent table performed successfully.");
    } catch (BigQueryException e) {
      System.out.println("Query not performed \n" + e.toString());
