initialize database from properties file

I am having problems writing a servlet to populate a database with values taken from a properties file (a simple text file). I have no problems when the properties file looks like this:
I can simple use String x = properties.getString("x"); and then enter x into an sql query. However, I need to populate the database from a property file which looks like this:
1 5
2 4
3 3
4 2
5 1
That is, the left column represents a series of values of "x" and the right column a series of values of "y". How do I get these values into my servlet and enter them en masse into a database?
Thanks in advance,
