Creating components for storing elements

You create ordinary components for storing the files that your team develops and the directories in which those files are cataloged.

When you create an ordinary component, you must specify the VOB that stores the component directory tree. You can store multiple components in a VOB, or you can create a VOB that stores one component.

When you create an ordinary component, it includes an initial baseline with a name in the following format:


This baseline selects the /main/0 version of the root directory of the component. It serves as the starting point for successive baselines of the component.
