// Sample to create an entry group
public class CreateEntryGroup {

  public static void main(String[] args) throws IOException {
    // TODO(developer): Replace these variables before running the sample.
    String projectId = "MY_PROJECT_ID";
    String location = "us-central1";
    String entryGroupId = "MY_ENTRY_GROUP_ID";
    createEntryGroup(projectId, location, entryGroupId);

  // Create Entry Group.
  public static void createEntryGroup(String projectId, String location, String entryGroupId)
      throws IOException {
    // Initialize client that will be used to send requests. This client only needs to be created
    // once, and can be reused for multiple requests. After completing all of your requests, call
    // the "close" method on the client to safely clean up any remaining background resources.
    try (DataCatalogClient dataCatalogClient = DataCatalogClient.create()) {
      EntryGroup entryGroup =
              .setDisplayName("MY Entry Group")
              .setDescription("This Entry Group consists of ....")

      CreateEntryGroupRequest entryGroupRequest =
              .setParent(LocationName.of(projectId, location).toString())

      System.out.println("Entry Group created successfully");
