A slight quibble: Rather than create a new 10g database with dbca, use dbca to create scripts that will let you create the database as many times as you need to. It may take a few tries to get everything right, especially if you are new to exp/imp and have to go through the learning curves involved in all these steps. It has the helpful sideeffect  of giving you something to start with when you want to create slightly different test databases.

Also, perhaps your app vendor has some helpful docs (though beware, I've seen some give out horribly wrong or out-of-date stuff).
