select * from table1 fuller outer join table2
on ( matching_columns)

Nulls on either side represent a difference, eg

SQL> create table t1 as select empno, ename, sal from scott.emp;

Table created.

SQL> create table t2 as select empno, ename, sal from scott.emp;

Table created.

SQL>
SQL> delete from t1 where rownum = 1;

1 row deleted.

SQL> insert into t2 (empno,ename) values ( 1000,'Connor');

1 row created.

SQL> select *
  2  from t1 full outer join t2
  3  on ( t1.empno = t2.empno );

You can customise this however you like to compare rows. Also checkout the ORA_HASH function for comparing row sets
