Read as tokens, insert as fields

int fieldNum = 0;
StringTokenizer st = new StringTokenizer(fileLine);
while ( st.hasMOreTokens()) {
  ps.setString(++fieldNum, st.nextToken());
}

A PreparedStatement is an easy  way to add content to a query statement or update/insert statement.

You can find the Javadocs here: http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/api/java/sql/PreparedStatement.html
