Oracle DB Clone without SMO

I want to clone our production DWH DB to our test environment with a different DB Name (DWHP -> DWHT). Since both DB's run on Solaris with Containers we cann't use Snap Manager for Oracle. I have found a few references in the web that indicate that it is possible to do this manually using FlexClone.

Is this possible ? Can anybody point me to a description or white paper where the procedure is described, including pre and post work in the Oracle DB's ?
