    Well, depending on where the text file is, you can use Scanner (Scanner (Java Platform SE 6)) or BufferedReader (BufferedReader (Java Platform SE 6)). Then use the Database classes to communicate and write to the database (Statement, Connection, ResultSet, ect.).

    Firstly I suggest writing something that will allow you to connect to an SQL database. Then you can worry about populating it..

    Is it a mySQL database?
