Data pump export and import modes are used to determine the type and portions of database to be exported and imported. Oracle 10g supports 5 export and import modes:

  • Full: Exports and imports a full database. Use the FULL parameter to specify this mode.
  • Schema: Enables you to export and import all objects that belong to a schema. Use the SCHEMAS parameter to specify this mode. This is the default mode.
  • Table: Enables you to export and import specific tables and partitions. Use the TABLES parameter to specify this mode.
  • Tablespace: Enables a privileged user to move a set of tablespaces from one Oracle database to another. Use the TABLESPACES parameter to specify this mode.
  • Tablespace: Enables a privileged user to move metadata from the tables within a specified set of tablespaces from one Oracle database to another. Use the TRANSPORT_TABLESPACES parameter to specify this mode.
