So, any script is executed by some tool - Database Workbench (?),
IBExpert, isql, IBObjects, etc. - and you just have to add a command
CREATE JAVA LIBRARY ... FROM FILE ... to that tool and load data from
file directly. Or INSERT INTO ... VALUES (..., file://..., ...) for
BLOB support. Those tools already have internal parsers, such feature
means only more advanced parser on their side.
