10g to 11g Schema Refresh

Hello All,

Here is my scenario ..

I have a 10g (10.2.0.4) Database  - Database A and i have cloned the same Database and upgraded it to 11g R2 (11.2.1.0) Database - Database B.

DATABASE A and DATABASE B has same Schema structure also.

I need to refresh Database B Schemas from Database A schemas.

The following are my questions :

1.) Will this be compatible, since i am doing an export/import of schemas from 10g to 11g.
2.) Should i need to do additional operations like validations.
3.) Is there any other way to do this other than export/import or Materialized Views.

Thanks

Max

create a database link from the 11g db to the 10g db and use dbms_datapump


declare
   v_handle NUMBER;
BEGIN
   v_handle:=
   DBMS_DATAPUMP.OPEN (operation   => 'IMPORT',
                       job_mode    => 'SCHEMA',
                       remote_link => 'YOUR_DB_LINK'
                               );

   DBMS_DATAPUMP.metadata_filter (handle => v_handle,
                                  NAME   => 'SCHEMA_LIST',
                                  VALUE  => '''SCHEMA1'',''SCHEMA2'''
                               );

   DBMS_DATAPUMP.set_parameter (handle => v_handle,
                                NAME   => 'TABLE_EXISTS_ACTION',
                                VALUE  => 'REPLACE'
                               );


   dbms_datapump.add_file(handle => v_handle,
                          filename => 'your_log_file_name_here.log',
                          directory => 'DATA_PUMP_DIR',
                          filetype=>3);


   DBMS_DATAPUMP.set_parallel(v_handle, 4);

   DBMS_DATAPUMP.start_job (v_handle);
END;

for your export/import,  use expdp  and impdp.

if you must use exp/imp (can't think of reason why you would have to though)
then use 10g exp and 11g imp
