    To the best of my knowledge, no.  It will require a traditional exp/imp instead.  HTH

    I am just trying to confirm it as I have read in oracle published book that  "Direct Upgrade of the database to version 11 is only supported if your present database is using one of these releases of Oracle:, or"  So does this mean that these specific oracle version can be upgraded to 11.? not the later versions ( etc) ? .

    No. Releases after also will be upgraded.
    They mean something else. 9i was
    unstable until release
    Oracle refuses support of lower versions of 9i.
