The DataSnap REST Application wizard creates a project that is a starting point for building an AJAX-enabled web application. Regardless of the options you select, the wizard creates a unit that contains the following components:

Note: The TDSRESTWebDispatcher component of the REST application still uses sessions unless you set the SessionLifetime property from TimeOut to Request.
