Backup methods other than exp/imp

Please help me with Oracle scheduled backup and recovery in a 10g database. I am using exp/imp for backup. Can I choose another method?

Since you are using 10g, I would highly recommend setting up a Flash Recovery Area. Then use Enterprise Manager to schedule a nightly backup using RMAN. In my opinion, using export/import is not a sound backup and recovery methodology. RMAN provides a complete solution. I would recommend reading the Oracle Backup and Recovery documentation for more information. You can find a copy on http://tahiti.oracle.com.
