Cannot Compile when using FileInputStream

Currently Being Moderated
I am trying to read data from a file...

I cannot compile this and I have tried importing all of the java.io.* classes and it still does not compile.

Help!


I have the following imports:

import net.rim.device.api.ui.*;
import net.rim.device.api.system.Application;
import javax.microedition.io.*;
import javax.microedition.io.file.*;
import java.io.*;
import net.rim.device.api.ui.component.*;
import net.rim.device.api.ui.container.*;
import net.rim.device.api.system.Bitmap;
import net.rim.device.api.system.*;
import JavaProjects.JDE42.EmergInfo.Resource.*;
import net.rim.device.api.i18n.*;


And the code snippet:

private void ReadDataFile()
{
try {

FileInputStream fstream = new FileInputStream(_resources.getString(EmergInfoResResource.DWI_DATAFILE));

DataInputStream in = new DataInputStream(fstream);
BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(new InputStreamReader(in));
String strLine;
//Read File Line By Line
while ((strLine = br.readLine()) != null) {
// Print the content on the console
System.out.println (strLine);
}
//Close the input stream
in.close();
}catch (Exception e){//Catch exception if any
System.err.println("Error: " + e.getMessage());
}
}

On compile, I get the following errors:
