Re: ORA-03113 while exporting

Morning Gabriel,

I'm pretty certain I've had this before, but just in case :

... if you are doing a FULL export - it fails. ... if you are doing a schema/user export, it works ok.

If so, try setting your JAVA_POOL_SIZE to something like 32K (or is it M ?) whihc is the minimum required.

As far as I remember, I had this problem in a previous life, the problem seems to be that when exporting PUBLIC SYNONYMS, teh code used internally to extract the list of P S is Java code. Without a JAVA_POOL, you are somewhat 'stuffed'.

I put the database into SQL_TRACE mode and ran the export to find that out :o)

Good luck.
