Hi, I am trying to create an apex rest service but getting error Invalid type for Http* method: system.RestRequest

Here is the function where I am getting this error.

@RestResource(urlMapping='/v.9/scorecard/*') 

global with sharing class ScorecardRestSvc {

A way that RestRequest and RestResponse are accessed is changed in the API version 24.0. Because of this change, any code with version 24.0 or later needs to access them by using new RestContext object. 

Here is the new way of doing so:

@HttpPost

global Static Map<String,String> doPut() {

    RestRequest req = RestContext.request;

    RestResponse res = RestContext.response;

The old way for the same for version below 24.0 is:

@HttpPost

global Static Map<String,String> doPut(RestRequest req, RestResponse res) {
