Package athena provides the client and types for making API requests to Amazon Athena.

Amazon Athena is an interactive query service that lets you use standard SQL to analyze data directly in Amazon S3. You can point Athena at your data in Amazon S3 and run ad-hoc queries and get results in seconds. Athena is serverless, so there is no infrastructure to set up or manage. You pay only for the queries you run. Athena scales automatically—executing queries in parallel—so results are fast, even with large datasets and complex queries. For more information, see What is Amazon Athena (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/athena/latest/ug/what-is.html) in the Amazon Athena User Guide.

If you connect to Athena using the JDBC driver, use version 1.1.0 of the driver or later with the Amazon Athena API. Earlier version drivers do not support the API. For more information and to download the driver, see Accessing Amazon Athena with JDBC (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/athena/latest/ug/connect-with-jdbc.html).

For code samples using the AWS SDK for Java, see Examples and Code Samples (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/athena/latest/ug/code-samples.html) in the Amazon Athena User Guide.

See https://docs.aws.amazon.com/goto/WebAPI/athena-2017-05-18 for more information on this service.

Using the Client

To contact Amazon Athena with the SDK use the New function to create a new service client. With that client you can make API requests to the service. These clients are safe to use concurrently.

See the SDK's documentation for more information on how to use the SDK. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/

See aws.Config documentation for more information on configuring SDK clients. https://docs.aws.amazon.com/sdk-for-go/api/aws/#Config
