copying file into database

This is the gist of what I am trying to do:
- I need to read a PDF file located on my machine through my java program.
- The PDF file needs to be then converted into a byte array
- The byte array then needs to be inserted into a (MS-SQL) table field (type=image)
- The PDF file then needs to be deleted from my machine
I am getting very confused with the different types of inputStreams, and how to use them.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
