We're experimenting with Docker and deploying in images build artefacts created from Visual COBOL 5.0 for Eclipse for Windows. We're using Git/Bitbucket for source code management and Nexus Pro to store build artefacts. We use Bamboo for build and deploy. I noticed some build outputs that we are including in Docker and storing in Nexus and wonder if they truly need to be deployed. I would appreciate reading your opinions regarding the following file types:
- .lst file - who looks at listing these days?
- .obj - if we always produce dlls/exes in our build, do we need to deploy obj files?
- .idy - nice to have, but with 2000 COBOL programs, an expensive luxury? If we have all the branch source stored safely in Git, is it better to create debug files on demand as needed?
- obj.1.tlog - what is a tlog file and why do I care?
