There are two ways you can represent your component diagram, viz
[1] Have one component diagram per use case, so it will be 3 or 4 depending on number of use cases(Refer worked out example in Mark Cade and Simon ).
[2] One component diagram for all usecases ( Refer chapter 9 of Cade and Sheil book ).

In fact, I have done both versions in my assignment.

Bottomline, does not matter whether you use 1 or 2 or both in the above, you should clearly seggregate the Tiers/Layers, if you use color for your diagram, then clearly state color coding explanation ( suggestion by cade and sheil in chapter 9).
I agree. Here's the link:
