From the 11.1 docs:

"Original export is desupported for general use as of Oracle Database 11g. The only supported use of Original Export in 11g is backward migration of XMLType data to a database version 10g release 2 (10.2) or earlier."

But the tools are still available in 11.1. I don't have 11.2 docs offline and "is experiencing problems".

They've made it clear that exp is no longer supported and that it now costs extra for similar functionality from a similar utility.

I have no problems with companies making money by offering value. But to effectively disable functionality on which some of their customers depend while providing seemingly the only viable alternative at premium pricing is IMHO reprehensible.

and they all have 'exp'.
