    PrintWriter pwriter = new PrintWriter(swriter);
    pwriter.println("Cost of living");          		
    pwriter.println("Cheaper in South India");

Three strings are written to StringWriter though PrintWriter object using println() method.


The data (three strings) available with StringWriter is written to DOS prompt in two ways using the objects of PrinteWriter and StringWriter. pwriter.write() statement can be replaced with pwriter.println().


Even though, the StringWriter object swriter is closed before printing, the data is not lost. That is, the earlier closing of StringWriter object does not have any affect on the data it stores.
