To publish a .NET Core project using the dotnet command line

To use the dotnet command line to publish a project for a COBOL application on .NET Core you use the dotnet publish command as follows:

dotnet publish [project-name.cblproj]
Note: You can omit the name of the project file if there is only one project file in the current directory.

The dotnet publish command includes more options than those shown above. For more information on the dotnet publish command see Microsoft: .NET fundamentals - dotnet publish.

Once you have published your project, see Microsoft: .NET fundamentals - .NET application publishing overview for information on which published files you need to deploy.


To publish the only project in the current directory to use framework-dependent deployment (FDD), run the following command:

dotnet publish --self-contained false
