Difference between using multiple built-on applications and components

Hello everyone!

In Pega 7 we have multiple built-on applications functionalty (info). And we have components which are also applications in fact.

When we have an application A and we want to separate some functionalty into a reusable part, we can do two things:

  1. Create a separate application B, which will include needed rulesets. Then build our application A on PegaRULES and application B.
  2. Create a component Comp, which will include needed rulesets. Then include Comp in our application A.

Are these two ways equal? I can see one difference: all rulesets that are contained in all components are located lower in ruleset stack than application rulesets.

Any other differences? Is there any best practice when to use multiple built-on applications and components? Do we really need such similar functionalty?
