you can use the dot notation and you can use mappings, example:

/mapping/directory/cartservice
mapping.directory.cartservice

Hi finnstone,

You need to setup a mapping in CF administrator.

This mapping points to a directory containing your componenets, then you reference them with . (dot) notation.

MappingName.DirectoryName.Component Name

So if you have this structure.

C:\Com\test
C:\Com\live

and you have components in both test and live. You would setup a mapping say called com to C:\Com\

And then call the component using com.test.ComponentName

finnstone,

I'd setup a mapping in cf administrator called api pointing to wwroot/show/api.

Then in code

<cfinvoke component="api.cartservice" method="newCart" >

No, you must use a mapping unless it's in the current directory.
