At Oracle Code One in October, and also on DOAG in Nurnberg Germany in November I presented on how to go beyond your regular chatbot. This presentation contained a part on exposing your Oracle Digital Assistant over Alexa and also a part on face recognition. I finally found the time to blog about it. In this blogpost I will share details of the Alexa implementation in this solution.
Typically there are 3 area’s of interest which I will explain.
Webhook Code to enable communication between Alexa and Oracle Digital Assistant
· Digital Assistant (DA)
Explaining the Webhook Code
The overall setup contains of Alexa, a NodeJS webhook and an Oracle Digital Assistant. The webhook code will be responsible for receiving and transforming the JSON payload from the Alexa request. The transformed will be sent to a webhook configured on Oracle DA. The DA will send its response back to the webhook, which will transform into a format that can be used by an Alexa device. To code exposes two REST endpoint. One to serve as webhook from Alexa ( /alexa ), and the other one as webhook from the Chatbot ( /webhook ). Read the complete article here.
