I was looking for PL/SQL examples to use metadata and data filtering in datapump API, but I didn’t find any. So here is one example. It uses table reload_dev_tables to specify what schemas/tables should be exported using data pump and what where clause should be set.

Structure for reload_dev_tables:

 Name                                      Null?    Type                        
 ----------------------------------------- -------- -------------
 OWNER                                     NOT NULL VARCHAR2(40)                
 TABLE_NAME                                NOT NULL VARCHAR2(40)                
 IS_FULL                                   NOT NULL NUMBER(1)                   
 FILTER_PREDICATE                                   VARCHAR2(250)   

Here is the datapump code itself, tested in This is just a demonstration how to use the datapump API, specifically the metadata and data filters.
