The Command Line Data Pump

Previous  Index  Next  How To Use

( Pro Edition )


The command-line version of the Data Pump tool can be used to execute (run) a previously saved Data Pump project. These projects can be created in the GUI version of the Data Pump. You cannot use the command-line Data Pump without a pump-project.


The command-line version can be used from the Windows Scheduler services, a batch file or the command prompt. This can be very useful for large or periodic transfers that need or can be ran at night.

Saved pump-projects contain database passwords - although they are somewhat encrypted, it's not a strong encryption!
