Does Oracle 11g Express Edition support the impdp utility ?

We are trying to import an Oracle dump within a Express Edition, without success. We got the error message: ORA-39213: Metadata processing is not available.

A) Source data base: Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release
B) Target data base: Oracle Database 11g Express Edition Release

Searching for solution led us to following forum entries:

1. Cause: DBMS_METADATA_UTIL package does not successfully ran. Solution: to install (among others) SQL> @$ORACLE_HOME/javavm/install/initjvm.sql
2. But: there is no @$ORACLE_HOME/javavm/install/initjvm.sql scrript -> -> Oracle 11g EX does not support java


a) Does support Oracle 11g EX the impdp utility at all ?
b) How would it be possible to import the above mentioned dump from (A) into (B) ?

Thanks in advance,
