In many shops is normal to compile your source code again in the production
environment, although it has already been tested (and compiled) in your
development and/or test (QA- Quality Assurance) instances. When yo go from,
say QA to production, you only transport the source code. Why? Because in
the new environment could be some differences regarding file levels, PTFs,
LIC levels, whatever... That's one of the reasons you usually must keep
some close tabs in any new (or updated) program that has been ported to a
production environment.
