What version of Oracle?
The traditional Oracle export utility, exp, does not have an export veiw only feature. The newer expdp utility does have DDL and object specific export options.
Depending on your version the dbms_metadata package can be used to extract the view DDL.
You can write SQL to build view source via selects against Oracle rdbms dictionary views using dba_views as mentioned but be advised that the text in dba_views does not correctly produce the view column list names for all views. To do that you have to read the view column names from dba_tab_columns.
