Called the Dominant Seventh because its intervallic relationships occur naturally in the seventh chord built on the dominant scale degree of a given key, the dominant seventh chord was the first to begin to appear regularly in Western music.
The dominant seventh chord is useful to composers because it is a major chord with a very strong sound, that also includes a tritone between the third and seventh of the chord.
While the dominant seventh chord is typically built on the fifth (or dominant) degree of a major scale, the minor seventh chord is built on the second, third, or sixth degree.

The prefix 'augmented' identifies it as being the largest of the three intervals; the others being the major sixth and minor sixth, which are one and two semitones smaller, respectively.
Its inversion is the diminished third, and its enharmonic equivalent is the minor seventh.
In its most common and expected resolution, the lower note of the interval moves downwards by a minor second to the dominant while the upper note, being chromatically inflected, is heard as the leading note of the dominant key, rising naturally by a minor second.

The five down a perfect fifth to the I chord and the VII chord up a minor second to the I chord, due to the expected resolution of the tritone, or the highly unstable diminished fifth which is present in a diatonic VII chord.
The II and IV chords have Subdominant Function, partially due to the fact that they are a fifth away from the Dominant chords of a key, and partially because in their own Tonic keys, their respective Dominant chords are built on the root notes of the stable Tonic function I and VI.
Minor seventh chords are pretty much like dominant seventh chords, except that they have a minor triad instead of a major one.

In jazz, chords are usually seventh chords, so you add the seventh too, to make a C major seventh, or Cmaj7: c e g b.
Notice in the key of C there are two major seventh chords, three minor seventh chords, one dominant seventh chord, and one half-diminished chord (min7 with flat 5).
The G7 is always in the key of C because it’s the dominant seventh in the key of C. So let’s say the Dmin7 is in the key of C too (if it’s not, you’ll know because it won’t sound right, then you can try other keys).

A functioning dominant seventh, which because of the dissonant 'tritone' between the major third and minor seventh, wants to resolve to a tonic chord, may be replaced with a dominant seventh chord with its root a diminished fifth, a 'tritone', away.
While the diminished seventh chord exists within the harmonic minor scale, it can also be used in a major key setting and it is said then to be 'substituting' for the dominant seventh.
Whichever of the four notes lies in the bass, the diminished seventh, will successfully substitute for the dominant seventh because in all four variants the leading note is present and it is this that 'resolves' by moving to the tonic in the final I chord.

So, for a C Dominant Seventh (C7), the chord spelling would look like this: C-E-G-Bb Please note that the Dominant Seventh is NOT found naturally in the major scale-as you can see, the C7 chord contains a Bb, whereas the scale contains a B natural.
For a C Major Seventh, you will end up with: C-E-G-B Notice that this chord does indeed fit the C Major scale, therefore this is the chord that will occur when you harmonize the scale in diatonic sevenths.
For an A Minor Seventh, which is the 6th degree of the C Major Scale, you will have: A-C-E-G Again, notice that the seventh of the chord fits nicely into the C Major scale.
