In this article we describe how Java can be used to implement an object-based, cross-domain, mixed initiative spoken dialogue manager (DM). We describe how dialogue that crosses between several business domains can be modelled as an inheriting and collaborating suite of objects suitable for implementation in Java. We describe the main features of the Java implementation and how the Java dialogue manager can be interfaced via the Galaxy software hub, as used in the DARPA-sponsored Communicator projects in the United States, with the various off-the-shelf components that are needed in a complete end-to-end spoken dialogue system. We describe the interplay of the Java components in the course of typical dialogue turns and present an example of the sort of dialogue that the Java DM can support. © 2004 Elsevier B.V.
