Oracle Data Pump Quick Start
Oracle Data Pump is the replacement for the original Export and Import utilities. Available starting in Oracle Database 10g, Oracle Data Pump enables very high-speed movement of data and metadata from one database to another. The Data Pump Export and Import utilities have a similar look and feel to the original utilities, but they are much more efficient and give one greater control and management of the import and export jobs. This paper gives users of the original Export and Import utilities a primer on how to move up to the faster, more powerful, and more flexible Data Pump Export and Import utilities.
