Not sure what you mean by reading a file into a java program. If you just want your java program to read a text file...
wrap a buffered reader around a file reader, and then use it's reaadline method to read one line at a time.
FileReader fr = new FileReader("Youfilename")
BufferedReader br = new Bufferedreader(fr)
String line = be.readLine()
while(line != null)
do whatever...
//read the next lien
line = be.readLine()
