To quote from the documentation that comes with Tomcat:
"This abstract class emulates some of the functionality found in the java.io.BufferedWriter and java.io.PrintWriter classes, however it differs in that it throws java.io.IOException from the print methods which PrintWriter does not."
The advantage of throwing an exception is that if your HTTP connection is broken for some reason, your JSP won't sit there trying to send characters to a broken connection.
