Class StringWriter

dw.io.Writer
dw.io.StringWriter
A Writer that can be used to generate a String.

In most cases it is not necessary to use StringWriter. If the final destination of the output is a file, use FileWriter directly. This will help to reduce memory usage. If you wish to transfer a feed to a remote FTP, SFTP or WebDAV server, first write the feed to the file system using FileWriter and optionally CSVStreamWriter or XMLStreamWriter, then upload the file with FTPClient.putBinary(String, File), SFTPClient.putBinary(String, File), or WebDAVClient.put(String, File).

Note: when this class is used with sensitive data, be careful in persisting sensitive information to disk.
