AWT alone cannot load/store bitmaps. You'll want to check out the Java Advanced Imaging (JAI) toolkit.
If that doesn't support bitmaps (I think it does, though), then you'll have to find another library that will do it for you.
If all else fails, the bitmap file format isn't that complicated; you could write your own reader/writer :)
