                ps.setString(2, phototitle);
                // size must be converted to int otherwise it results in error
                ps.setBinaryStream(3, file.getInputStream(), (int) file.getSize());
                out.println("File Uploaded Successfully.");

    1.) Use a servlet to handle the upload and only use JSPs for presenting data.
    2.) You prepared a query with two parameters for your two columns but you are setting three parameters on the prepared statement. What column do you expect the third parameter to bind to?
    3.) Better read the file line by line into List<Record> then write a class that persists that List<Record>.
    4.) Even better is to use DB provided tools to upload the data. They have already written programs that handle data import and export and it would be a shame to rewrite something they already provide with the database.
