Your method is fine, you can also use impdp over a db link which avoids a dmp file. Also watch for user created jobs if you are doing the migration via a different user as impdp will create the jobs under the user doing the import which I think should have been fixed in impdp

Subject: Method for migrating schema from PROD to DEV  

Does anyone have a proven method for migrating a schema from PROD to DEV? I plan on using export/import, but I've got a few reservations about the migration steps.  

I think the best method would be to do the following  

  1. Export Schema in PROD
  2. Export Schema in DEV (for backup)
  3. Drop user in DEV
  4. Create basic user in DEV
  5. Import user in DEV
  6. Verify object count - PROD vs DEV
  7. Compile schema

Does this sound right?
