Hi

I need to read a gsm file from a path and store it in a database.Is it possible to read and get a gsm file in a variable?

Thanks.

It is easy enough to read lots of different files, as long as you have access to the format they are in. I am sure you know it already, but there are reminders in the Java Tutorials. It depends whether it is text-based or binary; I am not familiar with gsm files myself.
For entering into a database, if you go through the JDBC forum, somebody said earlier this week you should create a .sql file and call that from the database for better performance.

I don't know of the gsm extension in particular, a Google says that there are three different types of files that have the same extension.

But no matter which file it is, there should be no problem in reading/writing it.

You didn't say what kind of file this is, but I'm assuming that it is a binary file, not a text file. So you can't keep it in a string (unless you want to use base-64 encoding or some such), but instead you need to use a byte[]. The corresponding DB type would be a BLOB.
