    Installing Dialog Designer

    Getting Started with Dialog Designer August 2005 15

    Before you install the software

    Before you install the software, Avaya recommends that you:

    Close any applications that might be open on your computer.

    Temporarily disable antivirus software.

    Installing the software

    To start the software installation:

    1. Insert the Dialog Designer installation CD into your CD drive.

    After the CD drive door is closed, the InstallShield Wizard should start automatically. If itdoes not, use Windows Explorer to navigate to your CD drive. Locate the file setup.exe at the root level of the CD and double-click the file name. The InstallShield Wizard shouldthen start.

    2. Follow the prompts.

    When prompted for the type of installation you want to perform, select from among thefollowing options:

    Typical - If you select this option, the InstallShield Wizard installs all the requiredsoftware packages.

    Custom - With this option, you can select which software packages to install. If youknow that you have some of the required software already installed, and you do notwant to reinstall it, select this option.

    The InstallShield Wizard proceeds to copy and install the software packages.

    If you choose to install the Java SDK software, the InstallShield Wizard starts a separate

    installation wizard for that package. Follow the prompts until the software is installed.If you choose to install the Jakarta Tomcat software, the InstallShield Wizard starts aseparate installation wizard for that package. Follow the prompts until the software isinstalled.

    The InstallShield Wizard installs the software, but before you can use it, you must still configurethe Dialog Designer settings. For the procedure to do so, see Configuring Dialog Designer onpage 16 .

    Tip:Tip: Avaya recommends that you read the Eclipse "readme" file, as it includes some

    valuable information and tips for configuring Eclipse. The readme file is located inthe readme subdirectory of the directory in which you installed Eclipse.

    Installation and Configuration

    16 Getting Started with Dialog Designer August 2005

    Configuring Dialog Designer After the Dialog Designer software packages are installed, there are still several steps to take toconfigure the software and make Dialog Designer fully functional:

    Create access options. For more information, see Creating access options on page 16 .

    Set up the workspace. For more information, see Setting up the workspace on page 17 .

    Set Dialog Designer preferences. For more information, see Setting Dialog Designer preferences on page 17 .

    If you want to use a microphone to simulate ASR responses, configure the SDK for microphone input. For more information, see Configuring the Microsoft Speech SDK for microphone input on page 19 .

    Creating access options

    If you chose to have the InstallShield Wizard create a desktop icon during installation, you nowhave an Eclipse icon on your desktop. To open Dialog Designer, which is an Eclipse plug-in,double-click this icon. Eclipse opens to the Welcome page.

    Note:Note: If Eclipse fails to start, verify that a Java 1.4 run-time environment (RTE) is being

    used to try to start Eclipse. An older version of the Java RTE, such as Java 1.3,can cause Eclipse to fail. To verify that a Java 1.4 run-time environment is beingused:

    1. Open an MS DOS Command prompt window.

    2. Change directories to the home directory where Eclipse is installed.

    3. Enter the command java -version

    4. If the RTE is not 1.4 or later, you must change it so that the RTE is Java 1.4 or later.

    For more information, see the documentation for the Java RTE.

    If you did not have the InstallShield Wizard create a desktop icon, you must navigate to theapplication file to start Eclipse. To do this, use Windows Explorer to locate the directory in whichyou installed the Eclipse software. In this directory, locate the file named eclipse.exe . Thisfile is the program file for Eclipse. To start the Eclipse software, and thus open Dialog Designer,double-click this file. This file is also the file you must use to create your own desktop icon,Quick Launch icon, or other custom access options.

    Getting Started with Dialog Designer August 2005 17

    Setting up the workspace

    When you first start Eclipse, the Eclipse Workspace Launcher asks you to select a workspace.Use the Browse button to navigate to the workspace directory where you installed Eclipse. If you used the default installation location for Eclipse, the path to this directory is:

    C :\Eclipse\workspace where C: is the drive letter of your primary drive.

    terminology. If you are not, Avaya recommends that you review them now. For theprocedure to view that information, see Viewing the Eclipse Workbench User Guide, "Concepts" section on page 21 .

    The Dialog Designer workbench was designed as a speech project perspective in Eclipse. Thelayout of the views and workspace are optimized to assist you in the creation of speechapplication projects. The following descriptions can give you a clear understanding of how theseenvironmental elements are arranged in Dialog Designer and why.

    Of course, as with any Eclipse perspective, you are free to arrange perspective elements anyway you want and you can save those changes. If you do so, the following descriptions might nolonger be applicable.

    Note:Note: The following descriptions include only the views and editors available in the

    standard Dialog Designer speech perspective. They do not include the menusand toolbar items. For a discussion of the menu and toolbar items, see DialogDesigner menu and toolbar options on page 32 .

    Starting in the upper-left corner of the window and working left-to-right and top-to-bottom, theDialog Designer speech perspective consists of the following major elements:

    The Navigator view on page 22

    The Editor view on page 24

    Of special interest to Dialog Designer users:

    When you create a speech project in Dialog Designer, it automatically creates thefollowing standard folders in the project folder:- connectivity - This folder contains any database or Web service operations files you

    create as part of your project.

    - data - This folder contains mostly files that are derived from other files. For example,when you create a grammar, the Grammar File Editor creates a *.gram file thatcontains the metadata for the grammar. When you generate the project, DialogDesigner creates a *.grxml file that contains the actual XML grammar file. This *.grxmlfile is derived from the *.gram file.

    Usually, the derived files in this folder are hidden, and you do not see them in theNavigator view.

    ! Important:Important: Do not attempt to manually edit these files.

    This folder also contains the log folder. The log folder is where log files created duringapplication testing are written. You can view these log files, if necessary, as an aid indebugging your applications.

    Finally, this folder also contains a temp folder where any messages you record duringapplication testing are stored.

    - flow - This folder contains the main.flow file. This file is the core of your call flowapplication (speech project). It is built and edited using the Call Flow Editor. For information about the Call Flow Editor, see Chapter 5: Working with the Call FlowEditor on page 57 .

    - icons - This folder contains several icons used for Dialog Designer. Do not delete or alter these icons.

    - languageName - This folder contains all the phrase, prompt, and grammar definitionfiles for your speech project. Whenever you create or import a phrase file, a promptfile, or a grammar file, Dialog Designer places the file in the appropriate subfolder of this folder.

    The actual name of this folder is the name assigned to the project primary language.- WEB-INF - This folder contains all the output files created whenever you generate or

    build the project. Essentially, these files are what get packaged when preparing theapplication for deployment.

    - work - This folder is used as a temporary folder by the Tomcat servlet engine. Do notattempt to manually edit the contents of this folder.

    You can open the editors for many project resources, such as phrases, prompts, andgrammars by double-clicking the file in the Navigator view. For example, to open aspecific phrase in the Phrase File Editor, you can double-click the *.phrase file.

    You can also perform many other actions on selected project resources by right-clickingthe desired resource. Then, select the appropriate action from the pop-up context menu.

    Tip:Tip: One especially useful option of these context menus is the ability to generate

    individual files or project resources. For example, to regenerate a projectgrammar without having to regenerate the entire project, right-click on the *.gramfile in the Navigator view. Then click Generate from the pop-up context menu.

    For more information about the Navigator view in Eclipse see the topic "Navigator view" in theEclipse Workbench User Guide online Help.

    The Editor view

    By default, the Editor view is located in the upper-right area of the window. The main area of thisview is called the workspace . The workspace is where most of the real work of developing andbuilding a speech application project takes place. Because of this, the Editor view is the largestview in Dialog Designer. What you see and what you can do in this view depends largely onwhat editor you have open at the time. For more information, see The Dialog Designer editors on page 24 .

    Using the Editor view tabs, you can switch back and forth quickly and easily between openeditors and between pages within editors. For more information, see Editor view tabs onpage 25 .

    The Dialog Designer editors

    The following list offers a high-level overview of the editors available in Dialog Designer:

    Call Flow Editor - The primary editor for Dialog Designer. In the Call Flow Editor, youplace nodes and connect them, to create the call flows that direct the caller experience.For more information, see Chapter 5: Working with the Call Flow Editor on page 57 .

    Phrase File Editor - Use this editor to modify phrase meta data, such as phrase text,relevant comments, and search keywords. You can also record phrases, saving them in*.wav file format. For more information, see Using the Phrase File Editor on page 80 .

    Prompt File Editor - Use this editor to define and modify prompts, from very simpleannouncements to very complex prompts involving variables, conditions, and logic. For more information, see Using the Prompt File Editor on page 94 .

    Variable Editor - Use this editor to create, define, and modify variables, and to viewthe variables that exist in the current project. For more information see Using the VariableEditor on page 113 .

    Grammar File Editor - Use this editor to define and modify grammars, using a rangeof parameters and options. For more information, see Defining and modifyinggrammars on page 124 .

    Database Operation File Editor - Use this editor to define and modify the way your project works with selected databases. For more information, see Using the DatabaseOperation File Editor on page 158 .

    Web Service Operation File Editor - Use this editor to define and modify the wayyour project works with selected Web services. For more information, see Using the WebService Operation File Editor on page 171 .

    Event Type Editor (available only from within the Call Flow Editor) - Use this editor todefine and modify custom events and how your project implements them. For moreinformation, see Using the Event Type Editor on page 178 .

    Editor view tabs

    Dialog Designer (Eclipse) uses two types of tabs in the Editor view:

    Editor tabs (or top tabs) - Whenever you open an editor, the Editor view displays a tab for that editor in the view toolbar. You can switch quickly and easily between open editors byclicking these tabs. Each tab displays an icon representing which type of editor isassociated with that tab, along with the name of the project element currently open.

    You can close the editor associated with a given tab by clicking the X on the tab. When theeditor closes, the Editor view no longer displays the tab for that editor.

    Note:Note: One exception to this rule of thumb is the Event Type Editor. This editor operates

    a little differently, because it actually opens within the Call Flow Editor. To closethis editors, click the small x in the upper-right corner of the Call Flow Editor workspace.

    Page tabs (or bottom tabs) - Some editors are multiple page editors. That is, they havemore than one workspace page associated with them. When this is the case, the Editor

    view displays a page tab at the bottom of the view for each workspace page available inthe active editor.

    For example, when the Phrase File Editor is active, the Phrase and Audio page tabs bothbecome available along the bottom toolbar of the Editor view.

    The Outline view

    Located by default in the lower-left corner of the window, the Outline view is a standard Eclipseview. In Dialog Designer, the Outline view functions only when the Call Flow Editor is the activeeditor.

    Note:Note: The Outline view is active also when a Java ( *.java ) file is being edited. That,

    however, is considered part of the Eclipse framework and not specifically DialogDesigner.

    When the Call Flow Editor is active, the Outline view displays a thumbnail presentation of thecall flow. If the call flow is a large and complex one, you can use the thumbnail presentation tomove quickly to the part of the call flow you want to see in the main workspace. As you click anddrag the shaded area in the Outline view, the main workspace simultaneously updates topresent the full size view of the shaded area.

    The Outline view also provides an option to see a list of all the bookmarks in your call flow. Youcan use this list to navigate between bookmarks in a call flow. This can be useful when youhave a very large and complex call flow.

    To use the Bookmark option in the Outline view, click the Bookmark icon in the Outline viewtoolbar. Dialog Designer displays a list of all the bookmarks in your call flow. To navigate to aparticular bookmark, click the bookmark you want to view in the main workspace. The focus inthe main workspace of the Call Flow Editor shifts to display the bookmark you clicked. For moreinformation about the Bookmark item, see Bookmark on page 66 .

    For more information about the Outline view in Eclipse, see the topic "Outline view" in theEclipse Workbench User Guide online Help.

    The Avaya Voice Browser view

    Unique to Dialog Designer, the Avaya Voice Browser view offers the display and controls for the Avaya Voice Browser. The Avaya Voice Browser is a VoiceXML interpreter program. DialogDesigner uses the Avaya Voice Browser to test applications by simulation. The Avaya VoiceBrowser view includes three tabbed secondary views that present different aspects of thebrowsers operation:

    The Call tab

    The Input tab

    The Log tab The Script tab

    By default, Dialog Designer displays the Avaya Voice Browser view in a tabbed notebook, ontop of the Problems view and the Tasks view, in the lower-center area of the window.

    The Call tab

    The Call tab is the primary (default) tab for the Avaya Voice Browser. Use this tab to start or endthe simulation of the project and to set presimulation conditions.

    This tab includes the following options:

    Available Projects - Click to select the project you want to simulate. If multiple projectsare available, you can select only one at a time.

    Calling Number - Simulates ANI. Enter the number that represents the originatingtelephone number in this field. Use numbers only.

    Note:Note: If you use characters other than numbers, the Avaya Voice Browser passes them

    along exactly as you enter them in this field. However, in a live system with adeployed application, only numbers are passed to the application. For thisreason, Avaya recommends that you use only numbers in this field duringsimulations.

    Called Number - Simulates DNIS. Enter the number that represents the telephonenumber the caller must dial to get to this application. Use numbers only.

    Input Parameters - Used to simulate input expected from another application module.The format of this simulated input must match the expected format.

    Start Call - Click to start the simulation. This button is active only when a project isselected for simulation.

    Note:Note: If there are any errors in the project you want to simulate, this button is inactive.

    End Call - Click to end the simulation before it is finished running. This button is activeonly when a project is in simulation mode.

    Note:Note: This action is different from that of the Hang Up simulation button on the Input

    tab. This button stops the application wherever it is when you click it. The HangUp button on the Input tab simulates a caller being disconnected either by

    hanging up or some other means.

    The Input tab

    The Avaya Voice Browser (AVB) uses the Input tab to display progress and collect responseinput during application simulations. Use this tab to provide simulated caller responses and setup run-time error conditions. Error conditions include incorrect or no responses from callers,unexpected caller hang-ups, and other potential problem situations.

    This tab includes the following options:

    Telephone keypad - Use the twelve keys on the left side of the view to simulate caller DTMF (touchtone) input. When you click the keys you want to respond with, AVB displaysthe characters in the field just beneath the keypad. After clicking the keys you want torespond with, you must click Send for the simulation to continue.

    Send - Click to submit simulated DTMF responses to the browser for processing. Youmust click this button after clicking the desired keys on the telephone keypad for thesimulation to continue.

    Call Active - When the "LED" is green, it means that a call simulation is in progress. Redmeans that a call simulation is not in progress.

    Waiting ASR - When the "LED" is green, it means that the simulation is waiting for aspoken response. To simulate a spoken response, you must have the Microsoft SpeechSDK installed and configured properly.

    Note:Note: The Microsoft Speech SDK should have been installed during the Dialog

    Designer installation process. To configure the SDK for microphone input, seeConfiguring the Microsoft Speech SDK for microphone input on page 19 .

    Waiting DTMF - When the "LED" is green, it means that the simulation is waiting for aDTMF response. To simulate a DTMF response, click the keys on the keypad thatcorrespond with the response expected from the caller, and then click Send .

    No Input - Click this button to simulate a situation in which there is no response from thecaller.

    No Match - Click this button to simulate a situation in which the response of the caller

    does not match any expected input. Record End - This button is active only when the simulation requires a caller to respond

    by recording something. The Dialog Designer of Avaya Voice Browser does not detect aterminating silence. Use this button to simulate a terminating silence and signal the VoiceBrowser that you are finished recording.

    Tip:Tip: You can also simulate the use of DTMF key presses to end recordings. To do this,

    set the DTMF Terminate property of the Record item to True . Then, to simulatethis, use the telephone keypad to click touchtone keys and click Send . For information about the Record item, see Record on page 327 .

    Hang Up - Click this button to simulate a caller hanging up. In this case, the applicationproceeds to the next node.

    Xfer Status - Simulates the results of a call transfer action. This drop-down list becomesavailable only when the application contains a Bridged Transfer node. Result options youcan simulate include:- No Answer - Simulates a situation in which there was no answer from the party being

    called. In this case, Dialog Designer assigns a value of noanswer to the Value field of the applicable Bridged Transfer variable. You can then use the value of that variablefield to redirect the call flow.

    In deployed applications, the Connect Timeout property of the Bridged Transfer item

    determines the amount of time the system waits for an answer before it returns controlof the call to the application. For more information about the Bridged Transfer itemand its associated variable, see Bridged Transfer on page 239 .

    - Busy - Simulates a situation in which the line of the party being called is busy. In thiscase, Dialog Designer assigns a value of busy to the Value field of the applicableBridged Transfer variable. You can then use the value of that variable field to redirectthe call flow. For more information about the Bridged Transfer item and its associatedvariable, see Bridged Transfer on page 239 .

    - Disconnect - Simulates a situation in which the party being called hangs up but theoriginal caller stays on the line. In this case, Dialog Designer assigns a value of far_end_disconnect to the Value field of the applicable Bridged Transfer variable.You can then use the value of that variable field to redirect the call flow. For moreinformation about the Bridged Transfer item and its associated variable, see BridgedTransfer on page 239 .

    - Maxtime - Simulates a situation in which the bridged call exceeds the maximumallowable time for the conversation and the system disconnects the transfer call. In thiscase, Dialog Designer assigns a value of maxtime_disconnect to the Value field of the applicable Bridged Transfer variable. You can then use the value of that variablefield to redirect the call flow.

    In deployed applications, the Maximum Time property of the Bridged Transfer itemdetermines the maximum amount of time that a bridged transfer call can last beforethe system returns control of the call to the application. For more information about theBridged Transfer item and its associated variable, see Bridged Transfer onpage 239 .

    Avaya Voice Browser progress display - On the right side of this browser tab, there is adisplay-only pane which shows progress messages that are generated as the simulationproceeds. These messages tell you what the Avaya Voice Browser is doing as it simulatesthe execution of the application. This can be particularly helpful when debuggingapplications.

    The Log tabThe Log tab is a read-only display of the activity log created during simulations. This activity logrecords the output from the Avaya Voice Browser (AVB). You can use this to help debugapplications, particularly if you are creating custom VoiceXML code in your application.

    The Tasks view is a standard Eclipse view. It automatically displays tasks related to varioustypes of errors that might occur, such as Java syntax errors. You can also manually add tasks tothis list, for things you do not want to forget to take care of.

    For more information about the Tasks view in Eclipse, see the topic "Tasks view" in the EclipseWorkbench User Guide online Help.

    By default, Dialog Designer displays the Tasks view in a tabbed notebook, along with theAvaya Voice Browser view and the Problems view, in the lower-center area of the window.

    The Avaya Properties viewThe Avaya Properties view is a modification of the standard Eclipse Properties view. In alayout optimized for Dialog Designer, it displays property names and values for nodes, paletteoptions, or other items. The properties available for editing vary according to the editor, node, or item you are working with. For more information about the properties you can edit for aparticular node, option, or other item, see the online Help topic for that node, option, or item.

    For more information about the standard Properties view in Eclipse, see the topic "Propertiesview" in the Eclipse Workbench User Guide online Help.

    By default, Dialog Designer displays the Avaya Properties view in a tabbed notebook, alongwith the Console view, in the lower-right area of the window. Dialog Designer brings it to the

    foreground whenever: You click a node or item that requires or allows properties to be set here.

    You open a workspace page for a node or other item.

    You click the Avaya Properties tab.

    The Console view

    The Console view displays information about the Tomcat server status and activity. If you havethe debug output for tracing function turned on, this view also displays the VoiceXML outputgenerated by the application. This information is read only, but it might be helpful in debuggingapplications, especially if you can read and understand VoiceXML code.

    To turn on the debug output for tracing function:

    1. In the Window menu, click Preferences .

    The system displays the Preferences window.

    2. In the navigation pane on the left, click Avaya Dialog Designer > Avaya Voice Browser .

    3. Among the options on the right side of the Preferences window, verify that the check boxlabeled Enable logging of tracing output is selected.

    4. Click OK .

    Tip:Tip: With this function turned on, Dialog Designer not only displays the VoiceXML

    output in the Console view, but also writes the output to a trace log file. This file islocated at applicationName /data/log/tracelog- yyyy-mm-dd .log ,where applicationName represents the top level application directory, andyyyy-mm-dd represents the year-month-date that the file was generated. Notethat each new entry in this log file is appended to the end of whatever is alreadythere. So, if you are doing many simulations, the log file can become quite large.To view the contents of this log file, locate the file in the Navigator pane anddouble-click the file name.

    By default, Dialog Designer displays the Console view in a tabbed notebook, along with theProperties view, in the lower-right area of the window. The Console view is brought to theforeground whenever you start Tomcat or click the Console tab.

    The status bar

    The status bar runs along the bottom of the Dialog Designer workbench window. You can usethis bar to create "fast views". For more information about fast views, see the topic "Fast views"in the Eclipse Workbench User Guide online Help.

    The right side of the status bar also displays a progress indicator whenever you generate andbuild a project. This can be a helpful guide when compiling a large project, especially.
