I'm pretty new to RTC/Source Control. So I would like to know what a component is, why is it useful, and what are the access levels and for what scenarios they are set. Thank you in advance.

Start here: . also explains the basics and has additional links at the end.

Basically a component is a container element to organize code under SCM. Folders/projects under are contained in a component. A stream can contain multiple components and since 6.x components hierarchies are supported.

Structuring/partitioning the code into components can be done based on criteria such as architecture or affinity. Example UI stuff in one component, DB, build stuff into others.
