I make new installation of Solaris 10 with ZFS for Oracle 11 installation.
When Solaris 10 was with UFS I created temporary swap just by:
# mkfile 16g /var/newswap
# swap -a /var/newswap

ZFS doesn't accept this way: Invalid operation for this filesystem type.

Please advise

something wrong
# mkfile 16g /var/newswap
# swap -a zfs create -v 16g /var/newswap
Usage:  swap -l
        swap -s
        swap -d <file name> [low block]
        swap -a <file name> [low block] [nbr of blocks]

You need to create a zvol. See the zfs man page. Like this:

zfs create -V  16gb zpool/swapvol
swap -a /dev/zvol/dsk/zpool/swapvol
