Storing data to GridFS from a Java client

In the previous recipe, we saw how to store data to GridFS using the command-line utility called mongofiles, which comes with MongoDB to manage large data files. To get an idea of what GridFS is and what collections are used behind the scenes to store the data, refer to the previous recipe. In this recipe, we will look at storing data to GridFS using a Java client. The program will be a highly scaled down version of the mongofiles utility and focuses only on how to store, retrieve, and delete data rather than trying to provide a lot of options such as mongofiles do.
