You don't have to, since things are automatically compiled as needed, but you may want to, especially if you have complex dependencies (and you want to find any problems beforehand, such as missed object privileges). See

I don't on my systems, but they aren't all that complex. They are kind of strange for this type of operation, though, there are extra operations I have to do. It all depends on the particular app what the best thing to do is. I have to ignore a lot of "table doesn't exist" types of errors on import which get resolved on recompilation, and "user doesn't exist" errors which are informative, but useless. You have to understand all errors. Having MOS access can really help with this, especially when it is a new world. Everyone goes through the same learning curve, and that's a basic repository for solutions. Heck, I probably couldn't pass a job interview now, everything I've forgotten is on the net.
