Publishing an Oracle database allows you to temporarily attach the databases to the target Oracle server without launching restore. Publishing typically occurs faster than using standard restore features and could be convenient when, for example, your time to perform disaster-recovery operations is limited.
Once you are done working with the published database, you can export the modified database as an Oracle RMAN backup. For more information, see Exporting as RMAN Backup.
Before publishing data, read the Considerations and Limitations section.
