IECTL vs. Industrial Edge Publisher: Why does the IECTL produces smaller app file

I have observed that the IECTL  produces significant smaller apps compared to the  Industrial Edge Publisher. In my particular use case i am speaking about a drop of ca. 4GB.    How is that possible? why do these tools do not produce the same app file?

Hi Johannes, there are two different ways to export:

  • Export an application version
  • Export an application

can you please give some more details that you are exporting a version or complete application from Publisher UI? 


If you export complete application then size will be the same from both the tools.
