Both have different application.compressor is required to rise the pressure of gas while heat exchanger is used  to reduce heat of  compression and so to reduce gas temperature..

If the process is to compress and then cool (or heat ) the medium, then design the compressor first.  Having done so, you should be able to estimate its flow rate and pressure rise, and, most importantly, the temperature rise.  With that, you know the capacity of heat exchanger required.
