AIML - First Application


Advertisements


Let us start creating first bot which will simply greet a user with Hello User! when a user types Hello Alice.

Create the Project Structure

As in AIML Environment Setup, we've extracted content of program-ab in C > ab with the following directory structure.

S.No. Directory & Description
1

c:/ab/bots

Stores AIML bots

2

c:/ab/lib

Stores Java libraries

3

c:/ab/out

Java class file directory

4

c:/ab/run.bat

batch file for running Program AB

Now, create a directory test inside C > ab > bots and create the following directories in it.

S.No. Directory & Description
1

c:/ab/bots/test/aiml

Stores AIML files

2

c:/ab/bots/test/aimlif

Stores AIMLIF files

3

c:/ab/bots/test/config

Stores configuration files

4

c:/ab/bots/test/sets

Stores AIML Sets

5

c:/ab/bots/test/maps

Stores AIML Maps

Create Source Files

Create test.aiml inside C > ab > bots > test > aiml and test.aiml.csv inside C > ab > bots > test > aimlif directories.

test.aiml

<?xml version = "1.0" encoding = "UTF-8"?>
<aiml version="1.0.1" encoding = "UTF-8"?>
   <category>
      <pattern> HELLO ALICE </pattern>
      
      <template>
         Hello User
      </template>
      
   </category>
</aiml>

test.aiml.csv

0,HELLO ALICE,*,*,Hello User,test.aiml

Execute the Program

Open the command prompt. Go to C > ab > and type the following command −

java -cp lib/Ab.jar Main bot = test action = chat trace = false

Verify the Result

You'll see the following output −

Working Directory = C:\ab
