is this one time task or going to be periodic one..
database refresh rman duplicate is one way and it will copy entire so
exclusion on particular object basis won't be possible

schema refresh is one option..from the source prepare table list and prepare
dmps with rows if structure of tables are same
on the target empty thosr tables disable constraints, import the data and
enable the constraints..if structures are not same those object will throw
errors, after refresh, compare schems with toad kind of tool..

trasport tablespace is also an available option..and please check version
specific errors or bug history on MOS
