Your premise is faulty and, it appears, you are trying to reinvent the
wheel. Use CREATE SCHEMA and if it all doesn't succeed it all is rolled
Or perhaps you should look at the DBMS_REDEFINITION built-in package. http://www.psoug.org/reference/dbms_redefinition.html which has been around since 9.0.1.
