This is so frustrating. I am trying to find out information about the TDSRESTWebDispatcher component in XE7, so I try the help.

It has help information for TComponent, the class from which it inherits, instead. Lack of complete, quality documentation is the most frustrating part of using Delphi.
Description. TComponent is the common ancestor of all component classes. Datasnap.DSHTTPWebBroker.TDSRESTWebDispatcher inherits from System.Classes.TComponent. All content below this line refers to System.Classes.TComponent. TComponent is the common ancestor of all component classes.

Try searching for TDSRESTWebDispatcher in the main help.  I found some info here:  http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/XE8/en/DataSnap_REST_Application_Wizard  (or look at the XE7 page if you can't access XE8 page).
Database is an area where we are understaffed but working hard to catch up. If you want to contribute to the docwiki, just click Help Feedback link at the bottom of any help or docwiki page, and make your request (for example, you can ask for access to the XE8 docwiki). We would  appreciate real assistance from the Delphi community.
The class page now contains rather minimal help derived from source code comments:
"WebBroker component that dispatches DataSnap REST requests."

Help! Need input!  - 
 
I am working with XE7 on a Datasnap server application. I am using REST in this setup, opting away from the TCP/IP setup for now. I have no problems getting things to work using URL segmented parameters such as talked about on the Datasnap REST Messaging Protocol page (http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/XE7/en/DataSnap_REST_Messaging_Protocol)

What I am having trouble with is when using GET query parameters like this...  

  datasnap/rest/MyClass/MyMethod?p1=value1&p2=value2

When doing this, the parameters in the method have default values, but I can look up the parameters and their values using GetInvocationMetadata().QueryParams. That is quite confusing. I assume Datasnap is using the method signature for routing, but the parameters themselves are ignored the lookup has to be done.

Now that I think about it, Datasnap probably does not use method signatures for routing, because I believe you must have unique method names for all public methods in your ServerMethods class. 

Is this in fact what is going on or am I missing something?

What is the best way to handle both ways of calling a method in case where someone could call it using URL segmented parameters or someone else might call it with query parameters in the URL?

Their associates are more than willing to help in any way including staying after hours to finish a deal. We will surely purchase from Donohoo again in the future.
