If you are not running in Archive Log Mode, then you only have two options here. Option 1, pray that the information needed for recovery is found in your online redo logs. In that case, STARTUP MOUNT the database, then issue ALTER DATABASE RECOVER. When prompted for a log file name, respond with the name of your online redo log file, one by one. Hopefully, the information needed for recovery is in the online redo log files, and the database will recover just fine and you can open it for business. Option 2, restore the entire database contents from your last cold backup.
