I think there are numerous "easy" ways to get the objects, etc over - it's that data that presents challenges. If you were on 10g or newer then expdp/impdp would be one option (or as mentioned TTS). Using exp/imp forces a logging import which will create lots of redo and will be much slower than a nologging load. Unloading the database (or at least large tables) to flat files could be an option - then load back via parallel nologging direct path loads via external tables. Tools like WisdomForce FastReader might come in very handy if this is desirable.
